Going Too Fast by Lynne Viti
Advance Reviews for Going Too Fast
Going Too Fast is a masterfully composed collection of distinct but interrelated stories whose characters teeter on the fine edge between adolescence and adulthood. With arresting attention to detail, humor, and poignancy, Viti’s stories of love, loss, friendship, and family will resonate long after you’ve read them.
–Anne M. Brubaker, Wellesley College
The stories in Going Too Fast are both poetic and truthful, as Viti weaves together the prosaic and the extraordinary. In so doing, she moves her readers in and out of time. Like her characters, the stories have their feet in two worlds. Like a “tightrope artist,” the author delights, provokes, and entertains her readers in this shimmering new collection.
–Heather Corbally Bryant, Wellesley College, author, You Can’t Wrap Fire in Paper
“In these beautifully crafted stories, Lynne Viti lets readers effortlessly enter the world of the characters – whether it’s a 1960’s Manhattan college campus or the “wide cinder stub of a road” in Baltimore. Readers will appreciate Viti’s impeccable use of detail, her clear language, and the even-tempered, retrospective tone of her prose. These stories resonate; they stick around like fragments and figures of one’s own past.”
–Margaret Cezair-Thompson, Author of The True History of Paradise and The Pirate’s Daughter
