The Chocolate Jar and Other Stories by Roselee Blooston is a collection of humorous, incisive, and poignant tales from the author of two award-winning books: Dying in Dubai and Trial by Family. Its 8 stories explore transgressions large and small, and the lingering power of past conflicts. Whether an intra-office escalation over candy in the award-winning title story; a couple nursing their marriage through a sick plant; a first job leading to first love; boundaries crossed between neighbors; a spa weekend reconciliation between sisters; a daughter resisting her mother's intervention; a high school rivalry exploding into adulthood; or the struggle between a single mom and her teenage son, longing for his father--all will resonate with readers who relish short fiction that gets to the heart of everyday tensions and extraordinary ones.
