"This new collection by award-winning author Reginald Gibbons explores human experience and memory in ordinary settings-city apartments, rural roads, soap operas, and juvenile court-as way to understand the depths of thought and feeling in our everyday encounters. Using the art of the (very) short story form, these narrative meditations offer tremendous value to our daily crises, both personal and shared. Reginald Gibbons is the author of numerous collections of poetry and fiction. His book Creatures of a Day was a poetry finalist for the National Book Award. He lives in Evanston, IL, where he teaches at Northwestern University"-- Provided by publisher.
