Lost and Found: Stories
Lost and Found (Elk Bay Books, 2014) is an eclectic collection of twelve stories recounting tales of love and loss, heartache and redemption. It offers a ranging cast of characters, from Emily, isolated on the fog-draped Oregon coast as she confronts the loss of her unborn child a thousand miles away from her Wyoming childhood home, to Homer, an aging Colorado farmer struggling to hold onto old ways after he finds a migrant worker’s body dumped on his land. Readers will venture into the chaos of the war in Iraq and the cancerous American inheritance after Vietnam, into Colorado mining towns and Wyoming missile silos. The styles of the stories are eclectic as well, and while most are anchored in realism, others venture into the realm of magical realism–like when one homeless veteran is accused by others of believing he is a cat–and there are forays into comedy as well as dark psychological encounters with troubled narrators.
