MEET THE DEVIL

THE MAN WHO BUILT BOXES

THESE WERE FUN SHORT STORIES – NONE TOOK MORE THAN 30 MINUTES TO READ – A GOOD READ WHILE WORKING OUT ON THE TREADMILL!  IT WAS NICE TO BE ABLE TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN BETWEEN STORIES AND READ ANOTHER BOOK WITHOUT LOSING THE PLOT OR MOMENTUM.  I’M NOT USUALLY A FAN OF SHORT STORIES BUT THESE WORKED WELL FOR ME…

HERE IS THE PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION:

In these twelve stories, you’ll meet a remarkable cast of complex, quirky characters tangled up in the limits they’ve put on their lives. Driven by love or loneliness, like the man in the title, they’ve boxed themselves in. Frank Tavares tells their stories with humor and compassion. And while the themes may be familiar””crumbling marriages, feuding neighbors, sparring business partners, and the endless searching for what might have been””here they become fresh, unpredictable, and surprising. This exciting debut collection from a first-rate storyteller will haunt and fascinate you long after you finish reading. You may never look at a chance pick-up in a bar the same way again.
