Bamboo Fly Rod Suite by Frank Soos

Book Description

After he was handed an old, broken-down bamboo fly rod, Frank Soos waited several years before he cautiously undertook its restoration. That painstaking enterprise becomes the central metaphor and the unifying theme for the captivating personal essays presented here. With sly wit and disarming candor, Soos recounts fly-fishing adventures that become points of departure for wide-ranging ruminations on the larger questions that haunt him. Handsomely illustrated with full-color paintings by Alaskan artist Kesler Woodward, "Bamboo Fly Rod Suite" is a distinctive and rewarding book with wide-ranging appeal.

Unified Field Theory by Frank Soos Unified Field Theory, Paperback (October 2009)

The short stories in "Unified Field Theory" capture characters in the middle of their lives as things fall apart. Jobs, marriages, and hopes disintegrate under people while they seek strategies and explanations. Some look for something larger than themselves, while others get in their cars and drive as if motion alone might offer a solution.
