Book Description

Sept. 13 2011
*Straight Razor Days* takes an unflinching look at masculinity and its shifting codes in 21st c. Newfoundland. Fathers and sons, grandfathers and grandsons, police on the beat, strangers on the run, drunks in bars; God-fearing men, men with manifestos; lost and found men. “[Hynes] has a fine ear for the inflections of voice. His dialogue is littered with colloquialisms, which add authenticity, but aren’t laid on too thick. Hynes’s writing possesses a seamless emotional fluency, vividly capturing fleeting yet significant moments between friends and lovers. This is a full-blooded, psychologically incisive piece of writing.” - The Guardian

By zoom - Published on Amazon.com
This is the third work I've read by Hynes, but is quite unique from his novels. Consisting of a series of poetic vignettes it borders on abstract, yet is entirely relatable. It paints vividly the idiosyncrasies and thoughts peculiar to those times when we are alone. I recommend it (and his novels) highly.
