Attemptations : Short, Long and Longer Stories
by Kim Clark




Overview -
Imagine you're given the startling news that your body is only capable of having six more orgasms. It's either buck up or fuck up, decides Mel in Six Degrees of Altered Sensation, adding this new restraint to the perplexity of single life with progressive Multiple Sclerosis. In Flickering, Francis becomes a pyromaniac in order to give her grown sons the opportunity to become heroes. Mundane directions for propane use parallel a brief sizzling affair in Dick & Jane & the Barbecue and No, It's Not a Love Story.

Altered and twisted realities make the impossible possible for Clark's characters. Lillian, an arthritic senior in Solitaire, discovers the rejuvenating properties of the bones of her lively, young new neighbour. Looming dementia is replaced by ravenous desire. In Split Ends a woman finds a book that contains her own memories, but it is written by a stranger with the same name; in No U's, a woman slips away through the mail slot to escape her stagnant life.

Ranging from micro-fiction to near maxi-fiction, the stories in Attemptations are peopled by women, often physically challenged women--darkly humorous, feisty, sexy, manic, persevering, observant, contemplative women. These characters will snag you and hold you there 'til they're good and done.
