“Steep Drop,” the first novel from Pennsylvania author Kevin Richard White, recently became the 22nd new release from No Frills Buffalo publishing company.
White is also the author of a poetry collection titled “Handprint on the Windshield,” published by Black Coffee Press, and has been published in Kutztown University of Pennsylvania’s two literary magazines, Shoofly and Essence.
In “Steep Drop,” a troubled young man in search of a new life has decided to ruin his old one by leaving his wife with no explanation, and seemingly no reason. However, through flashbacks and memories, he realizes the severity of his mistake, only to find that his chance at reconciliation is useless when she wants nothing to do with him upon his return. What comes out of these encounters are moments of pain, loss, anger and reflection, all of which mesh together in a brutally honest and harrowingly poetic conclusion.
“It is not only a novel about choice, but about morality — what love can do to our thoughts, how it shapes our rationalizations about ourselves, and what we can learn from these days and nights where we are left to our own devices, wondering about the what ifs,” said the author.
