With sharp, clear prose and an insider's view of the media, Petrick's stories take us into a hall of mirrors where men and women struggle to understand themselves and their relationships with one another. In a climate defined by images, does love stand a chance when no one is certain what is real? In the title story, an accomplished skydiver goes airborne with a video camera to capture the love of his life, but a small oversight upends his best intentions.

The Short Story must be the most difficult medium to conquer in all of writing: Petrick has mastered this medium in Examining the detritus of human relationships William Petrick has that rare ability to create memorable characters and situations of immediacy in the matter of a few pages. The variety of stories is vast but the joining cord that connects them all is his uncanny ability to bring light into the understanding of how relationships between men and women function or why they don't and how to dissect individuals and their responses to their environment.
Petrick is able to move from the nostalgic to the grit of truth. In 'Car Crazy' he examines a failing man's involvement with his almost sole possession - his BMW - and how that leads to an examination of commitment and friendship with the trusted mechanic who in his simplicity is the only person able to believe in him.

In 'Sins of the Father' we met the parents of a boy who sits on death row and the influence of a reporter on the family ties. In 'Turn Around' the entire history of a love affair is compressed into a boarding situation at an air terminal. Some of the greatest short story writers such as Proulx, Updike, Palahniuk, Salinger Asimov and Bradbury had to start somewhere. This collection of fine stories by William Petrick suggests he may be headed in the right direction.

From that moment on, I was on fire, writing stories. The writing has never stopped even though it would be many years before my first story was published. In college, I discovered the vivid writing of James Baldwin.
