dc.description.abstract Through the Storm is a collection of novellas and short stories that showcase a blend of literary fiction and psychological thriller. Dark stories of love, lust, power and betrayal, the characters find themselves confronted by primal and oversized visions of nature. Stripped of the spoils of civilization, fancy lifestyles, IPhones and SUVs, raw passions and basic fears overwhelm the protagonists in typically less than pretty and always disastrous ways. Boats and people splinter in Through the Storm when a deranged sea captain desires a man’s wife sailing on the Caribbean. Death and the dark forests of purgatory can’t prevent a man from keeping his beloved wife from harm’s way in, The Guide. Five stories, each as old as mankind are told with jagged narratives and jump cuts reminiscent of the French Nouvelle Vague. Whether a teenage boy gets a lesson on normalcy from a schizophrenic hobo, urban legends hold true for a suburban family confronting a pack of feral dogs marching through their backyard, or a cheating husband taking the back route home in a snowstorm finds himself confronted with the big bad wolf, the inner mind is doomed to be lost in the vastness of the great outdoors. “Hold on to your butts.” –Ray Arnold (Samuel L. Jackson) Jurassic Park en_US
