Description
In an intricately linked series of poetic, short tales set in a 1983 suburb, Greg Bottoms portrays his life as one of two at-risk boys as they attempt to learn how to beand what it means to bemen. By turns funny, disquieting, and moving, Fight Scenes takes an unsparing look at juvenile disaffection and the dark side of white, working-class masculinity. By narrating his experiences with childhood buddy Mark, Bottoms shows how many of Americas young men learn to think about work, sex, weakness, violence, and themselves.
In a pared-down, highly readable style that brings to mind the work of Raymond Carver, Sherman Alexie, and Denis Johnson, Bottoms has created a work of literature that shows how even the most accepted forms of toughness can have a damaging, disorienting, and finally dehumanizing effect on everyone, especially kids.
