The greatest stories are not held back by barriers or borders. In this collection
of shorts we take a trip to London via Lebanon, to the jungles of Peru straight
up to the good outdoors of Canada. In each, a new story, unique in its own way, but universal in its sense of empathy, understanding, and desire. Sometimes silly, often sexy, and others shocking in their honesty. Just because they’re short, doesn’t mean they don’t pack a punch. SMcG.
