Illuminate



All of the stories in this first collection are as vibrant as the cover, with brighter-than-life characters who manage to illuminate the quirks and faults of human nature in a straight-up way.

My favorites were "Get Away From Me, David," about a man trying desperately to stay on the new side of sober; "Big Cats" which tells of a friendship tested; "Good to Hear You," in which a man discovers the unsettling aftermath of the attack on the Twin Towers before he learns of the event itself;" and "By the Time You Get This," a heartbreaking story of a woman lost after a tradegy.
