The resultMoreA winner of the 1992 National Magazine Award for Fiction whose work has also been anthologized in the O. Henry Awards series, W. D. Wetherell crafts in these nine stories dead-true dialogue, compelling situations, and powerful metaphors. The result is lightning-bolt revelations about the human condition. A young boy sees in his fathers expression the reality of failed dreams and schemes: He looked at me like a man who wants his son to buy his illusions and see through them and forgive him for having them in the first place.

A teen-aged daughter blazes the way for her father to the necessary blending of hope and grief as the two mourn the loss of wife and mother. A blizzard engulfs a Montana home and the boy Willem senses a wider apocalypse. The crust of the earth, the thing he took for granted most, was unwilling to support him, leaving him to flounder in a vague, sticky ether he couldnt trust. An aging, wheelchair-confined veteran faces an old nemesis and for a second time makes a life-or-death decision.

A seasoned, if failed, promoter thinks hes found in a spelling bee prodigy a success emerald colored and plenteous and much richer than anyone had ever told him. With searing honestly and wry humor, Wetherell, a master of many voices and many moods, one of Americas great short story writers, digs deep to find that great heart that beats beneath the surface of human experience.
