Jamie Quatro's powerful and prizewinning short-story collection.

Sharp-edged and fearless, mixing white-hot yearning with daring humour, Jamie Quatro’s debut short-story collection is a stunning and subversive portrait of modern infidelity, faith, and family. Set around Lookout Mountain on the border of Georgia and Tennessee, Quatro’s hypnotically revealing stories range from the traditional to the fabulist as they expose lives torn between spirituality and sexuality in the New American South. These 15 linked tales confront readers with dark theological complexities, fractured marriages and mercurial temptations. Throughout the collection, a mother in her late 30s relates the various stages of her affair while other characters lay bare their own notions of God, illicit sex, raising children and running: a wife comes home with her husband to find her lover’s corpse in their bed; marathon runners on a Civil War battlefield must carry phallic statues and are punished if they choose to unload their burdens; a girl’s embarrassment over attending a pool party with her quadriplegic mother turns to fierce devotion under the pitying gaze of other guests; and a husband asks his wife to show him how she would make love to another man. Sultry, acute, startlingly intimate and enticingly cool, I Want To Show You More is the thrilling debut of an exhilarating new voice in American fiction.

'Haunting and sharp ... [reminiscent] of the dark-meets-light style of Lydia Davis or Alice Munro – but it leaves room for zingers, too. Quatro is so good ... the title of this debut collection isn’t just a tease.'

'Passionate, sensuous, savagely intense, and remarkable ... Moves between carnality and spirit like some franker, modernised Flannery O’Connor.'
