The Secret Lives of People in Love

Simon Van Booy

Breathtaking…chillingly beautiful, like postcards from Eden…Van Booy’s stories are somehow like paintings the characters walk out of, and keep walking. – Los Angeles Times A newly packaged re-issue of Simon Van Booy’s critically acclaimed debut collection, THE SECRET LIVES OF PEOPLE IN LOVE. In The Secret Lives of People in Love, Simon Van Booy explores the sway of fate and power of memory on the lives of lonely and vulnerable people. With the same spare, economical prose that he brought to his subsequent collection, Love Begins in Winter, winner of the 2009 Frank O'Connor Short Story Award, Van Booy creates a profoundly humane and somber resonance with the assured hand of a first-rate storyteller (Newsday). The Secret Lives of People in Love announces the arrival of a major voice in fiction.
