Rooney's Shorts:

William Rooney

The author of Infidelity takes readers on a playful romp through oceanside settings to discover the highly sensual stories of the thwarted, frustrated, and misguided passions of the characters in these touching stories. The stories feature vivid characters who experience moments of human fragility in their quests for relationships and love that take them to the darker sides of humanity. Readers will enjoy a stream of surprising tales of moonstruck love, drunkenness, lunacy, and despair, brilliantly painted across wide stretches of coastal landscape. Rooney's Shorts is flooded with currents of memory and tides of dawning sexuality as they crash and swell against whirlpools of alcoholism and self-destruction. The salt-sprayed lives of Rooney's characters create a captivating sea that explores the inner workings of vulnerable relationships between men and boys and the relational power struggles that erupt between them.
