Ten short stories of ordinary events in ordinary lives which, upon closer inspection, are the extraordinary moments that make life exhilarating and exhausting, if only we realize what is happening.
In The Penny Box, a man tired from a lifetime of missed opportunity chooses the moment of his death, only to be upstaged yet again.
In The Trap, three fisherman become hunters when a bear raids their camp, and one of them must confront his crippling fear of life itself.
And in The Frontier, a frustrated husband and father finds himself alone and defeated, but can a single moment of clarity make his life, or any life, worth living?
Composed over the better part of a lifetime, these stories claw at the elaborate fabric of lies woven to keep the underlying truth concealed.
