SUMMARY:

In this wide-ranging collection of twelve short stories, a startling array of characters explore their perspectives on love. The stories sweep from sharp realism to heady allegory, haunting fables to sci-fi thrillers, starring teens and drifting husbands, futuristic automatons and talking dogs, gardeners and gatekeepers, a blind girl, a young father, and many more.

The BookViral Review:

A simply superb collection of stories from an exciting new voice in literary short stories, Resistance, Revolution and Other Love Stories might be a debut release for K but the quality and originality of the stories within are simply superb.

The short story is a difficult genre to master yet K is proof that this splintered genre is as vibrant and forceful as ever. Giving us an anthology of profound depth that blends insightful prose with expansive implications.

K asks us “Is love the most revolutionary of all acts?” And in doing so delivers a swiftly morphing exploration of love that finds a fine balance between sensory impulse and moral testament. Each story being distinct but all drawn together with a common undertone that echoes the wants, struggles and aspirations of life as we seek to make meaning of it.

From Automatonomatopoeia in which we’re asked to reflect not upon what is good or what is bad but rather what is necessary. To The Dog Whistle which proves an astute exploration of social divide and the seeds of discord that lead to revolution. These are prose that need no further articulation with each story encouraging us to reflect not only on the nature of love but the way in which it binds us to actions we may never otherwise have taken.

Beautifully penned, thought-provoking, intense and authentically engaging, Resistance, Revolution and Other Love Stories is certainly deserving of a place on your bookshelf and is unreservedly recommended.
