Overview

"Months and Seasons" is the follow-up story collection to Christopher Meeks' award-winning "The Middle-Aged Man and the Sea." With a combination of main characters from young to old, the tales combine drama and humor and pursue such people as a supermodel who awakens after open-heart surgery, a famous playwright who faces a firestorm consuming the landscape, a reluctant man who attends a Halloween party as Dracula, and a New Yorker who thinks she's a chicken. This collection made the long list of the prestigious Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award.

"Christopher Meeks' quirky stories are lyrical and wonderfully human. Enjoy."
--author Sandra Tsing Loh ("A Year in Van Nuys," "Aliens in America")

"If the object of art is to capture the reality of the human condition one glimpse at a time, then Christopher Meeks succeeds gloriously. His stories are delightful and heart-rending, surprising and eerily familiar--chronicles, all, of the epic battles fought by ordinary characters one day at a time."
--author Gina B. Nahai ("Caspian Rain")
