    One thought on “Dangerous Places”

    1. Compelling short fiction from a very talented writer. Definitely recommend this book to all lovers of the short story.

    2. I wrote it. The two novellas are the treasures of the book. An old guy going blind is a hero: a young woman coming of age cannot come to grips with her mother's suicide.
