One of America’s truly unique writers, Chris Helvey has brought eleven brand new, finely crafted short stories to the literary forefront.
“Through Helvey’s empathetic eye, the reader walks with each character as he or she stumbles along. A fascinating, detailed, and cogent look at those striving in a world they have never quite learned to negotiate. Engaging and powerful.”
—Joseph Peacock, author of Flying Without Wings
“Chris Helvey takes readers to the raw and gritty side of life in this collection of unforgettable short stories. His writing is honest and unflinching. The stories are haunting in their originality and will linger with you long after finishing them.”
—Michael Embry, author of Old Ways and New Days
“These stories will gnaw your fingers and squeeze your viscera. Don’t tell Mom what you’re reading. She’ll worry.”
—Matt P. Ryan, editor of Manslaughter Review
