""Robert's powers of observation, the way he focuses on apparently minor details that most of us overlook, make this collection of short stories a constant source of delight and surprise. These stories elevate everyday experiences to the level of high literary art. They do likewise with more profound human tragedies that cast an uncompromising light on the terrible things human beings knowingly and unknowingly do to one another."-Dennis M. Clausen, author of Prairie Son"Rich with insight into the human condition, "Traveling Sitting Still: short stories" is a moving collection of short stories from author Robert Judge Woerheide. In an age of increasing anonymity, these hard-edged, uncompromising stories remind us that we are part of a greater whole. Whether it's an injured American GI forced to dig his own grave during World War II, a lonely germ-phobic stuck on a freeway entrance ramp in Los Angeles, or a man headed for divorce who finds solace in a Chiquita banana sticker, Woerheide explores the darker aspects of humanity and our ability to exist within them.
