The nuthouse and other stories of home
The NutHouse and Other Stories of Home is a collection of short fiction loosely based around characters trying to find some measure of comfort in their lives. The word home can mean the place where our parents live or our apartment down the street. Perhaps home is more easily defined as a place where we are content. In their own way, each of the characters in this collection is struggling to find a home. In "The NutHouse," Bill confronts a home with his band mates, while in "Comfort Roll," Peter fears his home has changed because he can't share the same experiences with his friends any longer. "North to South, South to North" deals with a character who has his home taken away, and so he must look to an older home for comfort. "Dragon in Ink" deals with a character searching for comfort and love in a symbol, and "Sheldon and his Shell" exposes a character that has found home in his own subconscious.
