Loves’ Labors

Love’s Labors is a collection of “Ten stories, without an ounce of fat on them, involving a group of loosely connected characters, who live in urban Minnesota and rural Vermont. These are tales of thwart-ed ambition and disappointed dreams, of love in its various disguises. They are taut, wry, sometimes angry stories built upon faultless dialogue, many of them set against lyrical descriptions of the Vermont landscape. Above all, they are compassionate stories about people who, against the odds, are doing their best.” -Fraser Harrison, author of Infinite West: Travels In South Dakota and A Father’s Diary.
