Wheel of Misfortune: Eight Tales of Suffering
From birth to death we suffer. Some of us go through life relatively unscathed, while others are haunted by difficult experiences. Nevertheless, the phenomenon of suffering remains pervasive. In Wheel of Misfortune, author Seamus Saxon presents a collection of eight short stories that show the breadth of human suffering.
The eight stories range from a man who dreams of lottery numbers to a man fighting boredom with alcohol and a woman's valiant struggle against an irreversible disease. Each character tries to overcome the hand they have been dealt.
The characters live in a fictional town in New Jersey their hardships are very real. Fortunately help in some cases comes from very unlikely sources.
Showcasing the universal theme of suffering, Wheel of Misfortune demonstrates both the emotional and physical aspects of torment and how many people triumph over adversity while others are devastated by it.
