MEMOIR, VOL. 1 (For EXCERPTS, please scroll down.)
Winner of the Silver Medal in 2011’s eLit Awards, Short Story Collection Category!
“A very impressive collection of first-rate stories.” Betty Kelly Sargent, former Editor-in-Chief, William Morrow.
Moving, funny and beautifully-written, eChook’s first collection of stories by multiple authors, MEMOIR, VOL. 1, features a range of voices – twelve women and one man – compelling stories that will delight and entertain.
Like a tasting menu of autobiographical delights, the stories include a mischievous tale of a girl who shouldn’t play with matches, a mother and daughter who settle their differences with a prom dress and a kugel, a one-night stand that takes an unexpected turn, the unforeseen powers of a crossword puzzle, a wayward father’s alternate reality, and two tales about those mysterious creatures known as writers.
