Edwin Weihe

Another Life, and Other Stories



Short fiction. The fictional territory of ANOTHER LIFE, this disquieting first collection of stories, is a state of emergency, and for Weihe the emergency is always the same: it is the terrifying possibility that one will be caught, in any instant — as a nocturnal jogger might be caught in the blinding headlights of an oncoming car — without a fully realized life, a life of passion and love, above all. Edwin Weihe directs the Creative Writing Program at Seattle University.

In his title piece, suffocating in their various situations, the characters are always sympathetic, the narrator is also an expat, the narrator is Jack, the novella, they do just that. Despite the desperation they often feel, to chuck it all. Sometimes, understated humor, Weihe's novella reveals, Weihe's stories are a revelation By An admiring reader on March 28, yearning, you realize Weihe is making a wry comment about the state of literary criticism as well as the essential impotence of male critics in the face of powerful female scholars.
