Nobody Bats a Thousand
This collection of stories found regular American people dealing with regular people situations. They weren't necessarily "good or nice" situations, but lots of life experiences aren't. The characters are flawed and sometimes the resolution I hoped for, didn't happen. Again, realistic. Because of that, the name of the collection is quite appropriate.
The stories may not make you happy but they will make you think and relate.
Revised for Kindle, Nobody Bats a Thousand is a book of stories based on reality. The opening story, “A Bar Story”, showing a typical Friday night seen through the eyes of a middle-aged bartender, deals with conflicts that arise from changing times and generations. In “Home on the Range” a college student becomes reacquainted with his uncle, a famous touring musician, who teaches his nephew to look at life from a novel perspective. “Victims of Circumstance” centers on a young slacker and the 24 hours surrounding his 21st birthday in which he stumbles upon epiphanies about life, sex and his Vietnam veteran father. This book of literary fiction contains eight finely crafted stories about ordinary people involved in unique situations, presented in a style reminiscent of Raymond Carver, Richard Ford and David Sedaris.
