Dreaming Rodin

by John M. Flynn

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

Thoughtful, hopeful, at times gritty and comical, this short story collection delights in examining the lives of humble characters in oddball but everyday circumstances. There is an old-fashioned honesty in Flynn's work that reflects our common humanity. The author mirrors the commonplace, the foibles, and struggles of individuals seeking ways to resolve inevitable crises and disturbances. The writing is firm and poetic throughout, creating a total collection that is a rare gem from start to finish.


"There's something dazzling about the way Flynn brings his characters to life." 

                      Alyson Hagy, author of Boleto 

"If you like gritty short stories, firmly rooted in real life, you will love Dreaming Rodin."
