Richly satisfying, each tale portrays ordinary people meeting trouble head-on with courage and compassion: a teenaged girl coping with her father's nervous breakdown; a housewife filling her humdrum days with an eccentric lover; and a single mother struggling to hang onto her wayward son. With narrators Linda Stephens' and Tom Stechschulte's brilliant performances, these lyrical stories, made to be read aloud, will linger long in your memory.
The collection includes: "Bob, a Dog"; "Mom"; "Life on the Moon"; "Tongues of Fire"; "Dreamers"; "The Interpretation of Dreams"; "Desire on Domino Island"; "Intensive Care"; and "Me and My Baby View the Eclipse".
