Best Road Yet by Ryan Stone

John McNally, author of After the Workshop, says of Best Road Yet, "Ryan Stone understands the yearnings of people down on their luck, those longings and desires that his characters keep to themselves or tell few people, and he captures their struggles and hopes in prose that's as incandescent as a floodlight on a dark night. These are compelling and compassionate and heartbreaking stories. I urge you to stop what you're doing and read them." And Mary Troy, author of Beauties, says, "Ryan Stone gives us a fast-paced tour of the hearts and minds of men who do not belong in their own lives, and who, though they know it, remain surprised by that knowledge. Best Road Yet is a masterful collection not only for its vivid and real characters, but also for the possibilities woven through each story that cause us to hope-as the characters' decisions and lack of decisions lead them along-each new road will be the best one yet."
