Special like the People on TV

 

This is fiction, with a touch too much reality.  These brief stories, episodes in the life of diverse, and in certain cases, desperate characters ring true, in a way not unlike the dramas on the television.  It isn't reality, it is better.  As the credits roll up the page you will be wondering, musing, predicting what happens next.  

 

"Each of the stories is a gritty slice of hyper-realism. You know the people in these stories, I would guess. I surely do." -Clifford Garstang, author of What the Zhang Boys Know and In an Uncharted Country
