Overview

short Stories and Essays by Gerard Brooker

He realized that this wasn't religion, that it was a scam. But like the sucker at a carnival game trying to guess which shell hides the peanut, he paid the required amount.
"What is your question?" she asked.
"I want to know," he answered, "if I will ever get a novel published." She spent a lot of time moving the cards about until they were in a configuration that seemed to mean something to her. She looked him straight in the eye.
"There is a greater chance that the moon will rise out of the ocean tonight," she told him, "than you will ever get a novel published."

Gerard Brooker relates quirky yet meaningful stories-some autobiographical, others simply entertaining-in short Stories and Essays: the Musings of a Man Held Captive by His Imagination. From revealing young man's understandings as a monk, to his own experiences witnessing Joe DiMaggio's great blunder in the top of the ninth, Brooker shows us that eccentric people are usually the most interesting.
