dc.description.abstract A collection of 13 short and short, short stories, Grounding Out exposes the pasts and foreshadows the dark futures of its anti-heroes -weakened and disillusioned - but not out of the game, not yet. ‘Turtle Races’ protagonist considers, from a seedy motel’s barstool, that his life’s work consists of lining up recruits for the big leagues, offering the young men who trust him as much hope as a turtle crossing the interstate. ‘Sudden’ tells the story of a widower who struggles to live through the brokenness, lost love and loneliness of his life. ‘Fool’s Child’ remembers the clumsy, first-time sexual encounter that results in, Jennifer says, her pregnancy while leaving the supposed father with a set of doubts he cannot escape. en_US
