AN iBOOK BEST OF 2014

Told with perfect rhythm and unyielding brutality, these stories expose unsuspecting men and women to the realities of nature, the primal instincts of man and the dark humor and heartbreak of our struggle to not only thrive, but survive. In "Girl on Girl", a high-school girl goes to disturbing lengths to help an old friend; in "Meteorologist Dave Santana", an insatiable temptress pursues the one man she can't have; and in the title story, a long fraught relationship comes undone when three friends get impossibly lost on a lake that is impossible to get lost on. In Diane Cook's perilous worlds, the quotidian surfaces conceal darkly surreal elements that illuminate our more curious, troubling and bewildering behavior.
