Alterations: Stories

by Rita Plush
Short Story Collection / Mainstream / Historical / Ethnic

A collection of touching and memorable stories by the author of 'Lily Steps Out.'

See Details All these pieces feel so immediate and alive – the voices, every detail – like memoir. They’re intimate, and funny, and full of surprises. They’re big – about The Big Subjects, love, death, sex, loss, longing. A number of these stories are told from the point of view of a young child, sharp-eyed, all senses on high alert. I especially enjoyed “Love, Mona.” The intimate, beautiful portrayal of grief and hope ends with a wordless gesture so tender and expressive, I will never forget it. –Mary Azrael, Editor, Passager
