Little Stories by Jeff Roberts
Book DescriptionMy mind started racing. We had never really planned to live together; we hadn't planned on living apart, either. After she moved in with me, it was easier to get more involved than it was to cause a scene and split up What we had certainly wasn't the spiritual love of Shakespeare's sonnets, but it was certainly a comfort born of affection and habit The tales and vignettes found in Little Stories were first penned by author Jeff Roberts during his undergraduate years at the University of Iowa, where he tried to balance school with the full-time task of being a writer. Whether he's writing about the end of a love relationship or the pain in dealing with the loss of a beloved pet, Roberts' quietly moving stories are packed with real emotion and rich detail. Little Stories takes a critical look at the inevitable moments of betrayal and loneliness in our awkward quest to love and be loved, but the reader will discover the value - and even joy - to be had by looking backward and facing the past. This brilliant collection of tales should not be missed. "The hallmark of Roberts' collection is his strong writing. He captures scenes with expertise, and his characters come to life through the dialogue. The author's stories are moving, light-hearted when appropriate, and explicitly human. In its best moments the powerful stories quickly become page turners once you get into the text." - Writer's Digest
