We may walk safely upon the surface level engaged in simple, straightforward prose, but it is Stevens' knack for the language, and his careful sleight-of-hand, which will snatch a few of us and pull us under. K.J. Stevens is 31 years old. He lives in the rural, Northern Michigan town of Alpena, on the shores of Lake Huron. Infidelity is a collection of eight short stories. It is his sixth book.
