"Merciless Gods" by Christos Tsiolkas (2014)

In Merciless Gods, Christos Tsiolkas tackles his usual litany of themes across a range of short stories. What’s always been so captivating about his writing is his ability to take moments of mundaneness, depravity, danger, violence, love, lust, sex, frustration, anger, joy, and sorrow and lay them bare with a simple measure of precise words that make them all the more affecting. 741 more words
