I purchased the Sum of Many Things to read on my vacation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There are a variety of interesting stories. I was amazed at how quickly I would care about the characters. Some of the stories are dark, like stuck in Destin while others are funny like Trapeze Lesson. Seeing Things was my favorite. I highly recommend this book. ( )

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.
