I Am Dangerous: Stories
In this new collection of thirteen short stories, O. Henry Award-winning author Greg Johnson displays all the wit, irony, and insight into human relationships his readers have come to expect.
After a family argument, a teenaged boy takes refuge in a backyard tree--until his drunken father decides it's time to get him down. A close-knit, working-class family experiences new pressures when a troubled uncle comes home from the "hospital." Entering a darkened theater for an afternoon matinee, a young man recovering from a failed romance unwittingly sits down next to the only other member of the audience. And a Key West honeymoon seems eerily innocent until the past catches up with the bride and groom.
