Where We Live (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
Lyme resident Walter Wetherell has been giving his loyal readers good books for years. Be they essays, fiction, non fiction, books of nature or fishing, Wetherell never disappoints. His newest book of short stories is yet another gem. His imaginative plots are developed and concluded in often less than 20 pages and the reader comes away feeling as satisfied as if she had read a novel.
Where We Live is master story-teller W. D. Wetherell's fifth story collection, and his first in ten years, bringing together the best of his recent fictions. The stories exemplify the qualities readers and critics have praised in the past, while continuing to explore new directions in style, theme, and characterization. He illumines contemporary American life and culture by focusing on the forgotten places and people living on the edges, from a young Somali immigrant who finds an unlikely mentor in his attempt to come to terms with his new home, to a widower faced with the everyday challenges of his first day alone.
