Awards "Winer of the 2016 Howling Bird Press Fiction Award."--Front cover.
Summary Many of Appel's stories feature characters grappling with moral, ethical, and philosophical situations that lack governing social conventions. His stories show how ethics—something that sounds like an academic abstraction—can be concrete, visceral, and immediate. With compassion, wit, humor, and intelligence, these stories explore the gray areas of our lives.
