Damaged Angels [Paperback]
Author: Larry Benjamin
Damaged Angels [Paperback]
Published 8th April, 2013.

They were lost in the night, hidden by the shadows. They lived for the night and only in the night. For it was only in the dark that they came to light.

Damaged Angels is the first collection of short fiction by Larry Benjamin. The 13 stories in this collection give voice to the invisible, the damaged: the drug addicts and hustlers, the mentally ill, the confused, and the men who fall in love with them, all of them bravely trying to make a place for themselves in the world of unbroken men. Their worlds are sometimes the mean streets of decaying cities, sometimes the great beyond and, once, the earth itself.

Often dark, always evocative and lyrical, these stories delve into the lives of men clearly less-than-perfect and explore love in the context of disease and oncoming death as in "The Cross," drug addiction, as in "The Seduction of the Angel Gabriel," and mental illness in "2 Rivers."

These stories explore the possibility that less-than-perfect is sometimes perfect.
