Die Ritter der vierzig Inseln

Die Reise in eine phantastische Welt – das Abenteuer beginnt … Es ist eine fremde und phantastische Welt, in die der junge Dima eines Tages ganz plötzlich versetzt wird: ein Archipel aus vierzig Inseln, auf denen zahlreiche andere Jugendliche leben, die alle auf dieselbe magische Weise dort hingekommen sind wie Dima. Aber es ist keine…

A high school basketball coach learns that his star player is pregnant – with his child. A lonely woman reflects on her failed marriage and the single act of violence, years buried, that brought about its destruction. In these eight beautifully written, achingly poignant, and occasionally heartbreaking stories, the fine line between right and wrong, good and bad, love and violence is walked over and over again.

In "Good Girl," a depressed widower is forced to decide between the love of a good woman and the love of his own deeply flawed son. In another part of town and another time, thirteen-year-old Ellen, the central figure of "Theory of Realty," is discovering the menaces of being "at that age": too old for the dolls of her girlhood, too young to understand the weaknesses of the adults who surround her. The linked stories "Parts" and "Proof of God" offer distinct but equally correct versions of a brutal crime – one from the perspective of the victim's mother, one from the killer's.

Written with extraordinary empathy and maturity, and with the breadth and complexity of a novel, Jones's stories shed light on the darkness of the human condition.
