Michael Redhill follows his acclaimed novel 'Martin Sloane' with a masterfully subtle and haunting collection of short fiction which asks the question: what does it mean to be 'true'? 'Fidelity' chronicles the lives of men and women in the moments that turn on this crucial question.
In stories that range from the darkness of family silences to the hilarity of people caught in snares of their own making, Michael Redhill explores how even in our most profound connections to others we are always somehow alone, revealing that redemption cannot remove a stain, and that transgression often feels like something quite different - until it is too late.
Spell-binding and crackling with an unflinching attention to emotional detail. 'Fidelity' looks boldly at the flarings of desire that seduce - and sometimes break - body and soul.
