Review: DEATH IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING by William Quincy Belle

A man jumps from the 48th floor.

A love that goes unrequited for a lonely, fat man.

A mad woman ranting over the outrage regarding the 9/11 attacks.

“Desperate  people  do  desperate  things, and sometimes they see no other way out.” (7)

Candid and well-versed, these short stories are a witty portrayal of life’s challenges and the untimely demise. Tales were so refreshingly frank and had that wonderful touch of irony.

“It’s an amazing moment…when you come face to  face  with  your  mortality…There’s  the  possibility  of  seeing  that  time  cut  short  by unforeseen circumstances.” (69)

With haunting beauty and keen perception, the author managed to make death a splendored thing. A good read!

My rating: 4 stars
