The stories of The Other Side explore our connections and disjunctions with other people. Refusing the glib comforts of rote despair or a false happiness, The Other Side focuses on moments of personal growth as well as times of falling short---on the emotional hinges, defeats, and victories of life.

Upon reflection, the seven stories in this collection appear to be more different than alike. The lengths vary. The focal characters are both male and female. They’re rich, poor, and in between. They cover the full emotional range, from happy to sad. Yet the collection holds together because they all seem real, both the people and their tales. No reader will read each story and say, “I’ve been there,” but everyone will be able to say they got a glimpse of "The Other Side."
