This collection of short stories covers a wide range of subjects—from sex, sports and homeless stories ("The Bar of Soap," "One Homeless Man," "The Sap") to school stories ("The Grand Experiment," "Letter to a Thief") and animal stories ("Jack Hamster"). Plus, there’s a cruel mother-in-law story, a story about an unthinking neighbor ("My Across the Street Neighbor the Ex-Marine"), a story about a man who saves Manhattan from disaster, and even a story about unknown writers being the equal of any writer that has ever lived. My stories are innovative and unusual, as well as stimulating and humorous.
