Delving into the interior lives of an array of characters, this collection of short stories conveys the author's Texas roots with a New York twist, providing a look at Americana with humor and poignancy. These stories provide a rich collection of unforgettable characters—a New York bishop, artists, an aspiring novelist, the mother superior of a Catholic convent, a drug addict, a street drunk, and a pioneer blacksmith—the doomed and the blessed. Set mostly in New York City, this book provides acute portraits of contemporary culture.
