A collection of short short stories
“A stellar debut! I fell in love with how each short story packs a punch and is memorable on its own.” — Readers’ Favorite
Two runaways cross paths in a Tennessee bus station with only one ticket between them. A middle-aged man in Illinois eyes the daily grind of a young basketball player who never boards the school bus. A family sees looters racing toward their home as they escape an Oregon wildfire.
These and 47 literary, experimental, and speculative stories about people coping with or facing life-defining moments. Together, they provide a sampling of the American experience over the last 60 years, similar to the Spoon River Anthology by Edger Less Masters or The Canterbury Tales by Geoffry Chaucer.
