Summary

A matched pair of married music festival vendors scratching out a hardworking living on the road. Oblivious, trippy-dippy collegiate acid dealers looking for a quick score. A comedian-worshipping veterinarian on a sacred pilgrimage. A media star and Presidential candidate for whom elections represent but another bit of show business. A shamefaced mother exposed to her daughter’s most salacious secrets. And a great-grandmother, dying alone in a nursing home at Christmastime. These characters and more receive their quirky, humorous, and heart-tugging due in Southern novelist James D. McCallister’s first collection of award-winning short stories.
