Faces and Voices: Tales
Fiction. "In Larry Smith's FACES AND VOICES, the work of telling stories is the work of both healing wounds and shaping the world..After you read these stories, you will take a closer look at the waitress who refills your coffee, the man who cashes your check at the bank, the couple in the car that passes you on the secondary highway. What these monologues, letters and phone calls share is an urgency; with only the bare truth to guide them, Smith's characters struggle to make some sense in the world, and through telling their stories, they succeed"-Bonnie Jo Campbell. Smith's Family Matters: Poems of our Families, and Milldust and Roses: Memoirs, are also available from SPD.
