Abstract:

"An expedition into the complex nature of human existence, Jim Grimsley's elegant and dexterous stories slowly, with a powerful voice, take an iron grip on his readers and offer an authentic vision of a stark, and oftening unforgiving, world. Grimsley explores the dark edges and limitations of the human soul in this collection: a bachelor believes Jesus is sending him a message on his commuter train; an oil tycoon finds the meaning of life in a wayward jet; a young southern woman hopes to find a larger purpose to life before it's too late. Grimsley's fondness for fantasy and sci-fi elements, such as human cloning, often show up in his stories, lending his writing another layer of the fantastical."--Page 4 of cover.
