Publisher's Summary

Growing up is tough. So is growing old. And everything in between? Well, it’s all tough.  

Throughout this short fiction collection, you will find Internet daters, shy bus drivers, talking corpses, playground bullies, and monsters in the closet. Spies, old friends, unhappy teens, grieving sisters, overworked businessmen, and novice chess players bare their struggles and triumphs in local parks, cafes, funeral homes, bus stops, even their bedrooms.  

These poignant, often humorous, contemporary short stories remind us how important human connections are in this crazy yet beautiful world.  

Fifteen stories in all!

Some stories...

As always happens with short stories collections; some of them are good and some of them are not good.

The narrator is really good! So it's a good "reading"

Short Fiction

This book has a few good stories and a few stories that truly make no sense. Jodi Gaylord did a phenomenal job at narrating but even she couldn't save this book. I received this book from Audiobooks Unleashed and this is my honest unbiased review.
