    Four decades of developing a narrative style are compressed into this short collection of fiction. These little tales, set in various locations in America, parallel a larger body of the author's work. Together, they craft a unique vision of the mystery of human existence.

   An unbridled idealism is confronted by reality; the large and small catharses that shape characters still do not quite prepare them to meet the challenges that reveal themselves. Portrayed alternately with humor, and with the devastating tragedy so deeply a part of our experience, they offer glimpses through a window, at unexpected moments, into something eternal. For those willing to seek, these stories contain a hidden treasure; the breathaking possibility of true transfiguration.
