This is a collection of fifty-two short stories. These stories were written to be read aloud in various writers’ groups. To serve that purpose, they were written as first person narrations with a minimal amount of direct dialog. The narrators speak with different voices – a homeless man, a defense lawyer, a high school student, an itinerant short-order cook, and many others. Most of these stories are light-hearted whimsy, but that doesn’t stop them from taking a darker turn when necessary.
