Characters with DNA, blood and soul populate forty three stories and a novella by Peter Orner: Maggie Brown & Others. This book has stories without beginnings, middles, or ends--interlacing stories that never end--and a gallery of cross-generational characters who experience love and pain and the whole damn thing. Acknowledging the light while going into the dark, this unforgettable experimental writing redefines what a collection of short stories is.
