An expose and exploration of 2nd-rate artists in 4 tales July 14 2004
By Catherine Decker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This short collection of four short stories is connected by a theme of human littleness, provincialness, and self-deception. Music, art, and Italy are perhaps more basic links between the tales. Each of the stories features flawed human beings. The stories explore the relationships between people, exposing self-centered fantasies and delusions while at the same time showing the beauty of the human capacity to idealize and dream. The human pursuit of celebrity and celebrity-worship and the distance between celebrity and artistry are other themes that occur throughout the volume as well. Keates has mastered both the first-person and third-person narrative style. The stories also feature several homosexual characters and explores the problems of love both heterosexual and homosexual.
