Susan Sontag suggested, “Serious fiction writers think about moral problems practically.” When I read that I felt relieved, as most all my stories engage in debates over what is real or right or reasonable. But as so often happens with such explorations, they become reminiscent of one’s first experience with undertow at the beach. The ocean looks rather benign until you get waist deep. Thus, it goes as you wade into: “The Issue Is Trust Is It Not.” You'll find it on at this address: www.caleband lindapirtle.com/82849-2/

"Accidents of Birth" is a profound love story. Not man to woman, parent for child or that between siblings or friends, but the love that emerges when a quirky, illiterate, black housekeeper accepts her mother's deathbed behest. "Imogene," she say, "it now be you work to love the world - juss as it be." From such a commitment in the racially charged, politically divisive 20th century, an unforgettable story unfolds."
