Beschreibung

These well-crafted stories range in subject from a jilted husband's attempt to win his family back by breaking the world push-up record to the cause-and-effect relationship between one man's attempted suicide and the disabling of his rescuer's son. The title story details a system of colour-coding husbands; earthtone for the ones who never talk or if they do it's about crabgrass or the weather'; red for the guys who are always maddern' hell and want to hit people'; black husbands, the guys with hearts the colour of soot'; and green for the ones who just want to grow'. In Blue Husbands' Dickinson shows one man's transformation from a blue husband to a man who won't be confined by his father's paintbox reduction of marriage. Like Blue Husbands', many of these stories explore the hazards of marriage and Dickinson, avoiding the pitfall of sentimentality, powerfully and persuasively celebrates our desire for love.

Pressestimmen

'There's a lot of wonderful moping being done in Don Dickinson's debut, Blue Husbands. All but two of the collection's nine stories concern lonely men groping about for lost and distanced loves. Stunned by senseless deaths and divorces, Dickinson's husbands grieve in a strange and endearing assortment of forms: one swallows a chain, another talks to a crab, another attempts 300,000 push-ups on the front lawn of his ex-wife. What makes these stories brilliant -- and they are -- is that Dickinson crafts such daring, funny tales out of the tortured, melancholy lives of solitary men.' Quill & Quire
