Author: Howard Paap
Description: The quiet, earthy and welcomed realism of these short stories speaks to our deepest assumptions and sensitivities about where we came from, what we are doing here, and what our future might hold. With both simile and metaphor, Paap enables the reader to contemplate these ageless questions about family and community and the love of both.
