Overview

Once a happy family man, Kealan now spends his days walking aimlessly and crashing in his friend's spare room. It never seems to matter how much he walks, because his shadow is always there. When he meets younger Valerie, an inquisitive and sensitive soul, a few rays of light begin to penetrate his dark curtains. But what about her jealous ex? How is it that some things inevitably tie together? And where does one's shadow lead to?

Shadowboxer is a black novella that will one-two punch you in the gut, roundhouse clobber you in the kidneys, and finish you off with a flurry of dark jabs and hooks that will leave you reaching for a bottle, or some Prozac, or that fuzzy VHS copy of Pollyanna. Anything to shake off the gloom. Honestly, Trent Zelazny is starting to scare me a little. We talk about this writer’s or that writer’s latest offering, and how that writer is “working at the top of his form.” Well, I’m not sure Zelazny has a lower position in his form. He seems to do what he does so effortlessly…well, it’s scary. And encouraging. If this writer doesn’t slow down (and he better not) those of us who enjoy immersion in a convincingly shadowy world have much to look forward to. Shadowboxer is a knockout, from start to finish. Zelazny may well be the rightful heir to the dark landscape of fiction perfected by Cornell Woolrich—Yes, he is that good.

At this point I'll read pretty much anything Zelazny writes. Kealan Donovan has tragically lost everything. He spends his time living in a friend's spare room and walking around town, feeling sorry for himself. At a coffee shop he meets Valerie, who begins to pull him out of his slump. But Valerie's past catches up with her, and therefore catches up with Kealan. Philosophical musings and believable action. I really liked this one.

I'm thrilled to see this available in Nook. Would be great to see his others as well.
