EVERYTHING by Kevin Canty

Kevin Canty writes with a spare beauty. The book is designed so that there is a lot of white space on the pages and this space carries meaning. EVERYTHING is about people who are lost, looking for love, recovering from poor choices and yet have a resiliency that carries them through their damaged lives with strength and a certain dignity. Canty’s characters are able to tell us as much about themselves in their silences as when they speak.

WHERE THE MONEY WENT by Kevin Canty

I first fell under Kevin Canty’s spell after reading WINSLOW IN LOVE. Since then, I’ve read everything he writes.His newest book, WHERE THE MONEY WENT, is a collection of nine short stories. Almost all of them are about damaged people, the precariousness of life and happiness, what it feels like to be dispossessed, lonely or disenfranchised, and the role that alcohol plays in people’s lives.
