Craig Davidson brings beauty to even the most distasteful of subjects in an unsettling collection of short stories, writes Mina Holland. The short story collection that inspired this year's award-winning film of the same name, Rust and Bone is an unsettling read. Craig Davidson strips humanity down to its most base and conflicted. In "A Mean Utility", ad exec James Paris enters his dogs into bloody fights as an antidote to the emasculation of being unable to conceive with his wife. Davidson enjoys drawing attention to man's inner animal, doing little to distinguish between men and beasts.

A brilliant and urgent debut collection by a young writer exploring the darkest corners of human experience.In steel-tipped prose, Craig Davidson conjures a savage world populated by fighting dogs, prizefighters, sex addicts, and gamblers. In his title story, Davidson introduces an afflicted boxer whose hand never properly heals after a bone is broken. The fighter's career descends to bouts that have less to do with sport than with survival: no referee, no rules, not even gloves. In "A Mean Utility" we enter an even more desperate arena: dogfights where Rottweilers, pit bulls, and Dobermans fight each other to the death.Davidson's stories are small monuments to the telling detail. The hostility of his fictional universe is tempered by the humanity he invests in his characters and by his subtle and very moving observations of their motivations. He shares with Chuck Palahniuk the uncanny ability to compel our attention, time and time again, to the most difficult subject matter.

All of the protagonists in this short story collection—from the sympathetic repo man with a conscience (“On Sleepless Roads”) to the deceptively genteel upper middle class suburbanite with a warped sense of fatherhood and canine love (“A Mean Utility”)—either suffer from some debilitating character flaw or suffer some life-altering calamity and populate a grim universe with little hope for improvement. Incredibly, whether out of sublime optimism or wildly inappropriate perceptions of reality, these characters manage to survive and rationalize their conditions. Davidson’s collection is impressive, in part, because of his uncanny ability to lay bare the grotesque details of these flawed lives while simultaneously weaving powerful stories of twisted redemption. Some sly references within a few of these stories intertwine the characters’ lives (Davidson’s Canada is a small-scale postmodern update of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County), and some of these stories are better than others. But that’s kind of like saying some chocolates in a box of Godiva are better than others—their quality varies by such a small degree that only devouring the entire box will leave you with a sense of its overall excellence.

If you are a Denis Johnson (Jesus' Son), Thom Jones (The Pugilist At Rest) or Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club) fan, I think you'll like this young Canadian's short story collection. I normally don't read through entire story collections, even those with stories I enjoy, but I couldn't stay away from this book.

The stories are often grim and sad, which can be wearying after a while, but the freshness of the writing (Davidson is precise and colorful with language like Denis Johnson is and this makes his descriptions vivid) and the uniqueness of the tales made me return for more until I finished.

One story is about a sea world performer who has his leg accidentally torn off by a killer whale, another is about an ex-boxer -- who'd inadvertently killed an opponent in the ring -- who now trains up-and-comers in Thailand. Yet another is about two adults who reunite with their magician father 25 years after the idiosyncratic conjurer literally disappeared from their lives during a magic show.

Davidson's stories are about what happens to people when life doesn't work out the way they supposed it should. How do individuals handle adversity and what does the fallout feel like? This is at the heart of each of Davidson's powerful stories. His narratives are wise, original and thought-provoking. Recommended.

An outstanding collection of short stories!

"Rust and Bone" is everything that it is hyped up to be, from all good reviews here on Amazon.com, to the praise on the front cover from Chuck Palahniuk (author of "Fight Club"), to the praise on the back cover from Bret Easton Ellis (author of "American Psycho).

There are eight excellent stories in the book, a few related by the most minor factors. The story topics range from boxing, magic, dog fighting, a repo man, a basketball prodigy, a aquarium show whale rider, to a hardcore sex addict!

the stories:

Rust and Bone (4/5 stars)
The Rifleman (4/5 stars)
A Mean Utility (5/5 stars, gut wrenching stuff, an eye opener)

Rocket Ride (5/5 stars)
On Sleepless Roads (5/5 stars)

Friction (5/5 stars, the story about the sex addict, this story is everything Chuck Palahniuk's book "Snuff" should have been (sorry Chuck), the only "funny" story in the book)

Life in the Flesh (4/5 stars)

The Apprentice's Guide to Modern Magic (5/5 stars, longest story in the book, great writing with a strong finish)

Craid Davidson is a great writer, I recommend this book to anyone who likes short stories that keep you on the edge of your seat!

I came across this Canadian Author by pure chance and decided to give it a try.

Brilliant, humane and profound, collection of short stories, about life and the cards it deals us and the way we cope with them.

Very well written, thought provoking ( and well edited, which is not always the case, regretfully for us readers )

Give it a go. Strongly recommended.

Fantastic, visceral writing. The first story, you can almost feel the cuts and bruises as he goes along. Every story is like that, the very words smack you around. Amazing.

The plots from each story were believe able. The writer's prose was descriptive making the characters so real to the reader. I rarely read short stories but his writing style kept my interest.
