“In this engaging collection of stories, Peter Makuck returns to one of the most fertile wellsprings of literature-the family. With grace and wit, he dramatizes family matters in post-World War II America, drawing attention to why families matter and what’s the matter with so many of them. His stories document tensions between Northerners and Southerners, conservatives and liberals, church proponents and church opponents. As he points to the tragic and comic ways family members exacerbate and resolve their differences, he repeatedly surprises us with the mysterious ways people act. These stories are destined to beguile.”
—Henry Hart, author of James Dickey: The World As A Lie
