This Distance We Call Love by Minnesota author Carol Dines officially launched during a free, live-stream event on the Magers & Quinn Facebook Page or YouTube channel on August 4.
Blending humor and insight, the 13 stories in this collection explore interwoven themes of connection and disconnection in our most intimate relationships, a topic pertinent to our pandemic lives. Told through the voices of mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, sisters and friends, the loosely linked stories have been likened to Lorrie Moore and Alice Munroe in their narrative style.
Set in Minnesota, Italy, and Mexico, the collection delves deep into our changing world, revealing how the internet, climate change, sexual violence, aging and work impact our families, marriages, and friendships. While some relationships fall apart, others remain entrenched in old patterns, grappling with notions of self and duty. Altogether, the stories probe our most meaningful relationships, asking how love survives our changing world.
Mary Ann Grossman, Books Editor at The Pioneer Press, gave the short story collection a very strong review in the August 1st edition of the paper. As did MIdwest Book Review in its August editon, saying about This Distance We Call Love "A truly memorable read with deftly crafted and thought-provoking stories that will linger in the mind and memory long after the book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf." The book also received a great review from the Rochester Post Bulletin in July.
