Overview

"Point Reyes Station: At 10:42 a.m. deputies called for back-up for a “pedestrian who was not following orders.”

So begins the short story, “Following Orders” in which we are introduced to the charmingly confused pedestrian, Fred Rhinehart, one of the magical characters author Susanna Solomon has conjured up for us in this collection of short stories, all set in Point Reyes, her scenic and lovely home town in northern California. Though the characters are fictitious, the author conceived of their adventures by pondering on actual Sheriff’s Calls published in her favorite local newspaper, the Point Reyes Light. But Fred is not the only one of Solomon’s characters with whom readers will fall in love. There’s his wife, the cantankerous but loving Mildred; Doris, the local hairdresser, the voluptuous Officer Kettleman and more. It doesn’t take long for all of them to become as real as the town in which the author imagines they live, love and dream.

Editorial Reviews

Marin Independent Journal - Vicki Larson
"In Point Reyes Sheriff’s Calls, Susanna Solomon transforms little slices-of-life — a suspicious car, a woman yelling, teenagers misbehaving in a creek —into stories with meaning and emotion, filled with engaging characters both familiar and surprising..."
Women's National Book Association -SF - Linda Lee
“Point Reyes, the ‘Martha’s Vineyard of the West Coast’ is beautifully captured by debut author Susanna Solomon in her delightful short story collection.”
"Word By Word: Conversations with Authors"KRCB-FM - Gil Mansergh
“The logged entries made to the sheriff and printed in the local weekly are real, but it takes the observant, creative and witty mind of Susanna Solomon to populate those dry reports with fictional residents of Point Reyes in the pages of these entertainingly original short stories.”
