Kansas Stories represents a collage of fiction written by talented Kansas writers.
The Robert E. Gross Memorial Competition set its sights on fiction for the first time, resulting in a volume of eleven unique and passionate stories.
"Pocket Money" follows two converging paths from beginning to end without padding, yet with layers of significance beyond the lives it portrays.
"See" possesses a strong narrative voice that carries through to the end, a journey of nearly forty years.
"Gone Fishing" is the story of a man who in his retirement needs a vacation . . . and finds escape in landscape painting.--Sharon Lerch, New York City, judge of Kansas Stories
