Description - Demonology by Rick Moody
Rick Moody's new collection digs deep into American society and reveals the loss of connection that lurks under the surface. Cast in many forms - domestic comedy, pseudo-fairytale, philosophical argument - these stories are linked by the themes of loss, pleasure, and the difficulty of expressing love. And always they are characterised by a humour and a vibrancy of language that is uniquely Moody's.
