Book Image Did Not Load!‘A View from the Side of the Road’ (420 pages) is a collection of thirteen uniquely crafted short stories. Each story deals with original subject material and each story provides the reader with a different perspective on the human condition. Stories are poignant, intriguing, funny or mysterious, but always in the realm of what would be considered a good read. Inside this collection you will find unforgettable characters and events such as; an aged playwright who wants to solve a murder, a lonely Belfast woman searching for a new life, a great American author (Edna St. Vincent Millay) in her teens, Hallowell's local ghost pirate seeking salvation, A transformational clown involved in a love story, a feud between a rural mailman and the new guy in town, a revenge filled dentist with a broken heart and much more. Each story a well constructed tale designed to entertain, amuse, and move you in some small way. Lastly I perceive myself as a Maine writer so I believe if you are from Maine or New England you may get a little extra enjoyment out of the subjects, environment and the characters but many of the stories have a universal theme that can be enjoyed and understood by readers around the world.
