Marshall Moore’s brief fiction is propelled via a scathing wit and a dismal mind's eye, and he doesn't turn away from taking readers down roads which are much less traveled and barely even mapped. within the identify tale, a con guy cons a beguiling con artist… or does he? In “Grape Night,” a brand new arrival in Hong Kong enjoys the pleasures and terrors of a wine-tasting celebration with vacationing gods from the Greek pantheon. In “Underground,” the minotaurs who secretly regulate city lifestyles welcome a brand new member in their bloodthirsty elite. And in “Cambodia,” a country’s genocidal prior and its cosmopolitan current collide atop a ruined temple. In A backyard Fed by way of Lightning, as in his past short-story collections, Moore spans a number of genres of fiction and subverts them all.
