All the Comfort Sin Can Provide (Black Lawrence Press, 2021)
Grant Faulkner ’87, author and executive director of National Novel Writing Month
Marshal Poe ’84 had the pleasure of talking to Grant Faulkner. Poe says ”We discuss National Novel Writing Month, of which Grant is the executive director, 100 Word Story, of which Grant is a practitioner and editor, and Grant’s book of short stories All the Comfort Sin Can Provide. Here's a bit about the book, a book I highly recommend you buy and read.
‘With raw, lyrical ferocity, All the Comfort Sin Can Provide delves into the beguiling salve that sin can promise-tracing those hidden places most of us are afraid to acknowledge. In this collection of brutally unsentimental short stories, Grant Faulkner chronicles dreamers, addicts, and lost souls who have trusted too much in wayward love, the perilous balm of substances, or the unchecked hungers of others, but who are determined to find salvation in their odd definitions of transcendence.
Taking us from hot Arizona highways to cold Iowa hotel rooms, from the freedoms of the backwoods of New Mexico to the damnations of slick New York City law firms, Faulkner creates a shard-sharp mosaic of desire that careens off the page-honest, cutting, and wise.’
