Tyrants by Marshall N. Klimasewiski

Book Description

The grouped stories in Tyrants trace the many forms of emotional inheritance-cultural, romantic, and historical. Some deftly portray both time and place, while others mine interpersonal relations with such intimacy and truth that they could be set anytime, anywhere. In the first sequence of stories, a son inherits and reconsiders his father's convoluted and extravagant notions about love, sex, wealth, and fatherhood. In the second, an American man and his Korean wife confront the cultural implications of a romantic, self-imposed exile. And in the historical fictions that complete the collection, love and flight, ambition, exploration, and exile intertwine in a helium balloon above Sweden, in an Italian airship at the North Pole, and in Stalin's dacha during the Nazi invasion. Marshall N. Klimasewiski's talent for "deft psychological triangulations" (New York Times Book Review) and for capturing "the subtle dynamics between people" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) is on full display here.
