Sinopsis: Book by Martone, Professor Michael

From Library Journal: In his second collection, Martone focuses on our lack of safety, equating it with our loss of innocence. He accents the fragility of our arrangements, the randomness of disaster, the vulnerability of anyone crossing the road. Thus in "King of Safety" the narrator, whose father worked for the phone company, recalls in childhood being chosen King of Safety to ride the company's float in their annual parade. Grown and gone from home, the young man calls his parents when he travels from "the observation decks of tall buildings." The story is a subtle meditation on what keeps you safe: perhaps memory, the memory of childhood. Martone's prose is calm and untheatrical, but he writes as if his characters, all of us, were really perfoming on a high wire without a safety net beneath.Marcia Tager, Tenafly, N.J.
