Strait Men and Other Tales
Steele Roberts, $30.00,
Strait Men and Other Tales by Murray Edmond is a tricky beast. Its slim spine belies the size and style of the stories within – there’s nothing that you’d call a “normal” short story. Instead, you’re faced with the theatrical, the epistolary, the filmic, the journalistic. One theme for each story – because there are just four of these tales inside, and the titular “Strait Men” is decidedly in novella territory.
