In this extraordinary collection, Michael Knight delivers ten tales of ordinary people whose attempts at human connection often result in false starts, misunderstandings, or heavy silence. In "Now You See Her, " a widower learns that he and his teenage son share the same clandestine activity of spying on the woman next door. While working a summer job at a shipyard, a sixteen-year-old boy witnesses a terrible accident in "Gerald's Monkey." And in the title story, "Dogfight, " a neighborhood feud leads a man not only to covet his neighbor's wife, but also to regret the loss of his own marriage.
With both remarkable grace and subtle power, "Dogfight And Other Stories" proves that Michael Knight is a bright new talent and a master at portraying the poignancy of small struggles.
