By Richard Bausch
Richard Bausch is a grasp of the intimate second, of the methods we search to make lasting connections to each other and to the area. Gew writers evoke the complexities of affection as subtly, and few seize the poignancy of the unexpected perception or the rhythms of standard dialog with such delicacy and humor. To learn those twelve stories--of love and loss, of households and strangers, of small moments and massive epiphanies--is to be reminded back of the ability of brief fiction to delight and circulate us, to make us chuckle, or cry. In those profound glimpses into the personal fears, joys, and sorrows of individuals we all know, we discover printed a complete diversity of human adventure, advised with striking strength, readability, and compassion.
