These stories about artists, lovers, brothers and strangers acutely
probe love and loss, men and women together, and the family ties
that bind. A father renews an old artistic rivalry with his dying
son; a raucous family gathering ends in tragedy; a quick stop to
pick up a hitchhiker begins a chain of events that changes a man''s
Griffin covers birth, death and all the big moments in between.
Dark and yet uplifting, these stories take us to the heart of what
matters in the tangled lives of people on the edge of crisis.
