Cruelty by Jefferson Hansen
|Cruelty||Jefferson Hansen||BlazeVOX [books]|
In Jefferson Hansen’s collection of short stories, Cruelty, his assorted strange and confused characters are much like the people who pass through my life any day, only with a more pronounced and interesting strangeness. He has re-defined human complexity in a playful way and made it less disturbing—and more disturbing. A poetic fantasy of words and science ply their way through these short stories containing multiple duets of conversation as to why we exist and what we are. The intellectual nimbleness displayed in Hansen’s short stories is not unlike what is told in old allegories and folk and fairy tales.
—Chuck Richardson, author of Smoke and Does the Moon Ever Shine in Heaven?
Jefferson Hansen is the author of the novel ...and beefheart saved craig (BlazeVox) and a number of poetry collections, including the selected Jazz Forms (Blue Lion). He lives in Minneapolis.
