Where the Money Went

A collection of stories by

In a stunning collection filled with emotional honesty and sharp humor, acclaimed writer Kevin Canty offers a meditation on relationships and love from a man's point of view.

Few writers are as praised as Kevin Canty, a master of the short story whose work has been compared to that of Flannery O'Connor and Raymond Carver. In Where the Money Went, he has crafted a luminous collection bursting with intensity of emotion, evoking at its core the very human need to make sense of a nonsensical world.

From the narrator who struggles with his abiding loyalty to his ex-wife when he finds love with another woman to the newly divorced man who learns more than he wants to know about his friends' long-term marriages, these nine stories incisively touch on the complex nature of love from a male perspective. Canty, whose writing has been praised as, 'smart, gritty, unsentimental' (The New York Times), 'lovely and unforgiving' (The Boston Globe), 'enchanting and painful' (USA TODAY), powerfully conveys both the bitterness that can afflict romantic relationships, and the moments of tenderness that cut through it.
