The Fragility of Ice

ByKim Dallesandro

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“The 8mm film threaded its way through the projector, the clicking, purring sound as it advanced, crackling as the plastic perforated strip met metal. The screen black flickers white : black : fading into focus, focus now on three boys wrapped in heavy down filled coats, scarves, hand knitted hats pulled low, it was snowing it was cold, they spilled from the doorway into the snow kicking it, making snowballs, yelling, laughing, throwing and hitting each other, and like a gang of spirited ponies they galloped away towards the frozen lake.” A childhood tragedy bleeds through the lives of two brothers who end up waiting out the weather in a snowbound cabin in Iowa. With them an angel from Los Angeles, a depressed, divorced doctor, and two bottle blondes. Lies and truths, confessions and forgiveness fueled by dancing, drink and drugs - searching for the answer: what is and what is not? “When does it stop? When is the penance over, the sin erased, the peace restored?” A novel by Kim Dalesandro. "Raw and unflinching realism which verges on the psychedelic but never strays from being a spiritualy resonant tour-de-force.” (William Andrew Eatman - writer for Gus Van Sant ‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot ‘) “Kim Dallesandro writes with an enviable prowess that cannot be taught.” (Díre McCain , author of ‘A Scar is Borne’.)
