About this Book
The 12 stories in "Home Is the Hunter and Other Stories" deal with recurring dark and threatening themes: dysfunctional families, relationships in disrepair, childlessness (and the loss of a child) and cancer. But the stories also contain redemption and hope; relationships break down so that they may be made stronger, and people learn from their nightmares. The stories happen all over the map, from semi-rural Midwest to the deserts and mountains of the Southwest to the storm-wracked islands of the south seas. But whatever the setting, these stories illuminate the landscape of the human heart.
