Orders of Protection

Front Cover
University of North Texas Press, 2019 - Fiction - 162 pages
In abuse situations, people can go to court for orders of protection. But in these twelve stories, people also seek protection from various demons in unusual ways -- by impersonating famous musicians, cooking pet chickens, marching in parades, shooting at coyotes, calling lost dogs, and more. The characters don't always find their way to safety or even survival, but somehow optimism prevails anyway. Set in Illinois, these subtly linked stories explore circumstances and emotions through details that stay with you far beyond the last page.
