From poetic odes to loves lost and found, to a clear-eyed examination of just what it takes to destroy a strong man; from the complexities that lie at the roots of a mother's love for her son to a father's sensitive understanding of the difference between his child's imagination and the lies that lie in the minds of they boy's grandparents ... Carl Dow presents a ground-breaking collection of stories that will move, amuse and even, maybe, shock readers with their subtle understanding of the human spirit. With The Old Man's Last Sauna comes a powerful voice for the 21st century, born of the turmoil, violence and struggle for justice and understanding that marked so much of the 20th.
