Description

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles. He met Liston’s gaze but found it almost impossible to sustain eye contact. Soon it became an exercise in the control of fear. Sonny Liston gave Kid Dynamite the slightest hint of a smile and winked. In the build-up to a fight, Kid Dynamite’s head swirls – with thoughts of his estranged father, his difficult relationship with his stepfather, the time he met his hero, and the sense that his own life is reaching a moment of change. A masterclass in tone, atmosphere and control, ‘Sonny Liston Was a Friend of Mine’ pays testimony to Thom Jones’s unique talent for the short-story form. Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
