"In Flowers to the Torch, Peter Fiore takes us on a Grand Tour of his life, from the moment his mother says yes to his father to his own imagined death, in which, tweaking T. S. Eliot a bit, he goes out with a bang, and possibly a whimper as well. Along the way, it's impossible for readers not to catch glimpses of their own lives and journeys. These are scenes from the game of life. There's a lot of tennis and music and women, often connected in one way or another. In other words, it's about how we face one another and move, about relationships. As one character says, "I love you, and already it hurts." And even when some of these pieces make you ache with recognition, they can also make you laugh and think. After reading "Complication #19," you'll be able to entertain yourself for days trying to imagine the first 18 complications."-Bob Lucky, author of Ethiopian Time"show more
