Description

"In these twelve tales, poet and story writer Gary Fincke reconciles lost hope and quiet despair with small blessings and ultimate redemption.". "In the title story, Ben, a fifty-year-old bookstore clerk facing the possibility of prostate cancer, feels his life spiraling out of control as he endures his female doctor's examinations with childlike embarrassment on the one hand and struggles to conceal his age from his teenybopper coworkers on the other. Ben's only consolation is that "every day he heard about something a hundred times worse." In "Gatsby, Tender, Paradise," Bridgeford encounters a group of lightning strike and electrocution victims and feels lucky to have survived several light-switch shocks - the same type of shocks that have permanently disabled one man in the group."--BOOK JACKET.
