The stories amuse, entertain and sometimes confound, leaving the reader to wonder whether the stories and characters, as odd and colorful as they are, may in fact be more rooted in reality than imagination.
Filled with wit, pathos and surprises, the collection is culled from memories and experiences spanning a life replete with its most fulfilling, trying, oddly comedic and lucid elements – or from the deeply creative mind of a master storyteller.
Invoking snapshots of the past, each tale is complete in and of itself, though many allude to a deeper, layered and nuanced story, suggesting much that may have been left unwritten.
