Received as an ARC from the publisher. My blurb: "Barsa's prose in The Garden of Blue Roses is so crafted, so elegant, that when it whispers its disturbing moments to you, they're as welcome as a charming dinner guest."

Light Both Foreign and Domestic by Darin Bradley
"First I should say that I always struggle with short stories. I wanted to read these because I'm a fan of Darin Bradley and I am a completist, but I must admit I feel weird writing the first review in Goodreads.

But a person who gets short stories..." Read more of this review »

I loved it. A short, twisty read roughly reminiscent of the nouveau roman while also both Pynchonian and Lovecraftian. Fantastic exploration of the weird without slavishly forcing any sort of overwrought plotline.

“I tried to convince myself once, when I was a teenager, that I felt God. Alone in the sanctuary, accompanying my mom on an evening errand to the church. I stared at the ceiling and drew deep breath as quickly as I could. I told our youth minister in his ball cap that I had felt Him. That I was blessed.

But in the end, it was only the wind and the rain, making noise in the darkness.”
Darin Bradley, Noise

“The problem with romance is the occlusion. The tunnel vision, drawing your every gaze downstream, into those other eyes, the flotsam of your better self, your clearer self, along for the ride. It doesn't matter what secrets swirl and bob in the waters beneath you, as you float toward that lady at Delphi, who, you imagined, reading Mythology, must have been beautiful. It doesn't matter that Charybdis, with no body, with no form, with only a mouth-as-being, couldn't have been evil, because she lacked the brain for it. It doesn't matter that following the logical course of events, the natural course, always disadvantages someone else, because love, after all, is simply a competition for resources, made infinitely complex and unknowable when squared and cubed and raised to every other emotional exponent - and then layered with sex and society and a bad memory for what those resources were in the first place.”
Darin Bradley, Noise

“We were most amused by destroying what we'd taken.”
Darin Bradley, Noise

“It is the spaces we must be concerned with. With clearing them out. Because of the contexts within them. With less context reacting us, we might all be safer. More efficient. I stare at the building across the road, and I wonder about its presence. Its residential spaces. Its malice.”
Darin Bradley, Chimpanzee
