A Review of "South Florida Spin" by Virginia Aronson Mar 19, 2008
Virginia Aronson's characters are ethereal, world-hungry ghosts lost in the haze of youth, addiction, delusion and obsession. From the inlands to the beaches of Miami, American Suburbia has never looked so alien and so familiar before. She brings to the table the starkness of Bukowski, the post-modernism of (Ryu) Murakami and Maugham's innate sense of beauty within the human condition.
This author would dispute the publisher's liner notes stating "a collection of short stories" to suggest that Mrs. Aronson has given us something more personal and cohesively powerful as a single lifetime experienced in sometimes painful measures to depict the cycle of abuses to hope and healing. Episodic, yes; but we are led through this story by skilled and talented hands. Poetic and rhythmic like the steady beat of ocean waves, "South Florida Spin" floats through your senses. It is an epic journey in 108 pages that will leave you breathless and stunned.
Mrs. Aronson's prose is fine and she promises to be an important author at this rate.
