Slivers Of Life
What an amazing collection of stories by a wonderfully talented writer. Jeanne M. Leiby has put together fifteen unique stories detailing the lives of children, women, mothers and fathers; characters which are so real and full of life, they threaten to jump off the pages and force the reader into their world. Leiby is a brilliant storyteller, drawing up images and emotions with nothing more than well-chosen words and beautiful descriptions of life in and around my home state of Michigan. The content of her work touches on death, sexuality, family relationships, and the fears that children harbor about the world around them. There's a connection to these characters. They could be your family or the neighbors who lived next door when you were a kid. Leiby has captured us (human beings) on these pages, no matter where we call home. For readers and writers looking for examples of quality short stories, this is the book for you. Jeanne Leiby was tragically killed in an auto accident in 2011.
