Synopsis: Arran Gimba’s To Light a Fire and Other Short Stories is a startling collection of highly unique and powerful stories of the human condition, often taken to the most fascinating and unlikely extremes. From the imaginative and starkly unsettling Death is Overrated, where the blatant disregard for human life is explored with such sarcasm and psychological edginess that the reader is quickly pulled into the action, to the wonderfully unpredictable The Crush Can, where a simple marketing idea to expand college students’ dating possibilities turns bizarre. In the title story, To Light a Fire, an act as innocuous as finding a nail clipper leads to near anarchy in a town’s high school. These stories in this remarkable collection reflect all that is sardonic and terrifying about living our quotidian lives. Ten very distinctive stories, each one capable of standing alone. This is an edgy and exceptional must-read book.

From the Back Cover: Arran Gimba's To Light a Fire and Other Short Stories is a startling collection of highly unique and powerful stories of the human condition, often taken to the most fascinating and unlikely extremes. These ten distinctive stories are as gritty as they are important. In each one, readers will find a part of themselves: their worst fears and their most impractical dreams. Whether Gimba is writing about terrorism or death, love or insecurity, he probes into the most painful, and often most hilarious, places in our psyches. Beginning with the lead story, Death is Overrated, where we begin to see life as little more than a body count, to The Crush Can, in which college students join a strange dating game that turns threatening and perhaps dangerous, and then to the title story, To Light a Fire, in which we are reminded that the simplest incident can explode into a fury of accusations and retribution, these thought-provoking and often unsettling stories are intended to make us think.
