"His Current Woman" by Jerzy Pilch

Monday, June 14, 2010

Short, biting, intriguing, surprising. Well worth the effort. This little story deals with the unpredictability of love, and its spiritual nature, and the maddening-ness of love. There is little to admire in Kohoutek, the main character, but in the end, there is a measure of, if not redemption, a growing realization of others' worth and needs.

And not too many stories have such foils that Kohoutek has in Dr. Oyermah. A joy to read.
