The Quarry: Stories

The Quarry: Stories

Harvey Grossinger


At the guts of this selection of 5 brief tales and the name novella is the robust interconnection among mom and dad and kids, nostalgia and reminiscence, and the collective emotional intimacies and transactions that configure human behavior.

Incisive and witty meditations at the disruptions and problems of kinfolk existence, the tales in The Quarry specialize in the precariously balanced international of apprehensive and awkward sons and painfully failed or failing fathers. The identify novella sifts in the course of the irreparable ethical and mental confusion led to via the Holocaust, following households as they fight to reconcile themselves to private affliction and personal grief―with no illusory platitudes concerning the redemptive energy of suffering.

With unerring compassion for conveying emotional revelations and a prepared sensitivity to the frailty and malleability of the human spirit, The Quarry lures the reader into confronting the main hidden and disquieting elements of the buried self.
