Locked Out: Stories Far from Home

4.99

The ten short stories in this collection will take you from Tokyo to Colombo, Singapore to St. Louis as they grapple with a sense of dislocation, and the nagging possibility of betrayal that accompanies new beginnings. In 'Locked Out', investigate the marriage of a woman confronted by her first gray hairs and her husband's sexy Japanese assistant. In 'Tiptoe', arrive in Singapore with a young New Hampshire wife and feel her bewilderment as she becomes a magnet for a deeply unhappy child. In 'The War of the Worlds', accompany an American boy on an unexpected afternoon with a German immigrant to his neighborhood.

Lester writes evocatively about the many facets of being far from home or uncomfortable where home is. Factor in the honest and amusing dialogue, and Lester's graceful prose, and the result is a very genuine collection that will appeal to seasoned and armchair travelers alike.
