Award-winning short stories by William (Bill) Evenhouse, theFolksinger. A focus on family covers the ordinary to extraordinary. From kidnapping and murder to strip dancing and divorce, the author never loses the linkage of love. These stories were written over a span of twenty years and range in location from the USA to Nigeria. Transcending personal experience, they clearly arise out of it. The author has been a teacher, a linguist, a recording artist, and a songwriter, and experience from all these are formative in the stories.
