Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989623939, Paperback)Award winner, Rick Maloy, has collected his short stories from 2007-2011. Each presents a unique snapshot of the humor, folly, and avoidable tragedies that befall humans. Haunting characters abound. A torqued-up teenage boy in possession of an unconscious girl. A lonely young woman visiting her mother’s birthplace in Ireland. Parents of a model child who discover she’s sold off the timber on their weekend retreat. Spouses blind-sided by betrayal. A man in his mid-fifties trapped by vanity into attending trapeze school. A young cemetery worker’s brush with sacrilege. These and other fascinating players find unusual paths to understanding in this powerful example of the writing craft.
