Surrendered Stories

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

A piece of writing is never finished. You just surrender. -Carter Monroe These four surrendered stories are accompanied by twenty-four b&w photographs. In "Cocteau’s Ransom," two dognappers believe they’ve found the solution to their financial troubles until unexpected complications arise. A lonely young woman with employment issues finds her escapism in vintage films at "The Vestige." When the Roussels "Return to Camp Bon Temps," their annual summer fishing camp, it’s not all good times as their daughter cannot forget the previous summer. In "Margaux’s Understudy," an inexperienced home healthcare worker uses the past in creative ways to engage her wards.

Rare Treat – A review of “Surrendered Stories” by Kristin Fouquet​

As a general rule, I seldom choose short stories to satisfy my literary appetite because unless it is done well, the reader is still hungry after what should have been a satisfying repast. Short story telling is a high art form and “Surrendered Stories” is classic high art.

Author Kristin Fouquet is a master storyteller who makes storytelling look easy, even though it is the opposite. Her writing is erudite, occasionally witty, even charming, and full of irony, but it is never stuffy. In this collection of stories with accompanying black and white photographs, Fouquet upholds her professional reputation as both wordsmith and photographer. Her writing and photos are crisp, spare, and eloquent. If I had to choose a favorite from this collection it would be “Margaux’s Understudy”. A most satisfying and rare treat indeed. Oui, cher.
