An old woman anxiously awaits a visit from her son, who she fears is planning to move her into a nursing home. A young parole officer is trapped in his elderly parolee’s apartment during the Watts’ Riots. A young minister discovers that he is in love with his church organist. A physical therapist organizes a meaningful response for New Yorkers following the September eleventh attack. And an aging “wannabe” sports hero is pitching a game for the ages.These and more than a dozen other tales make up this collection. Some of the stories are true, either memoir or biography; others are fiction. Some reflect life, lives the reader can easily relate to. Others are more fanciful: a story of the end of a “perfect marriage;” or an adventure from the perspective of a cat. And, finally, several “short shots” look at real life from a variety of views. Surely there will be something of interest for the most discriminating of readers in this collection of tales.
