Summary :

In September, the Light Changes presents sixteen stories written during the course of the last two decades, only three of which have been published before. In the longest story, "Amsterdam," the narrator visits an old friend and discovers something that makes his stay unbearable, causing him to seek solace in the beauty of the city's streets, museums, and bath houses. "Someone Is Crying in the Chateau de Berne" introduces Martin, a man "so shallow, he has depth," whose lush head of hair comes to symbolize an era. A chance encounter on a train (with a young raconteur who has pectoral muscles as massive as "the armor a Roman general wears in a statue at the Met") proves to be something else altogether in "Blorts." And in the title story, Holleran is at his most lyrical and moving as he writes of the end of the Fire Island beach season and the unchanging nature of desire.
