"Our great Western myth is that we are a people predisposed to progress, to forward motion, to action, and it’s true that when we tell our stories, if we’re good at telling our stories, we learn to give our listeners what they’re listening for, what Aristotle called What Happens Next. Action is eloquence, Shakespeare said. And yet so much happens between the action, in the quiet, between our ears, among the Hows and Whys and What Ifs we can articulate, and the Huhs we can’t. Here we must consult our great philosopher from Alabama, one Charles Barkley: If ifs were gifts, every day would be Christmas.” ~ from the Introduction by Kyle Minor. Editor Daniel E, Wickett brings together an impressive cast of writers―Benjamin Percy, T.M. McNally, Quinn Dalton, Max Ruback, Beth Ann Bauman, Philip F. Deaver, Steven Gillis, James R. Cooley, Jim Nichols, Pamela Erens, Joseph Freda, Nancy Ginzer, David Abrams, Gabriel Welsch, Rochelle Distelheim, Kaytie M. Lee, Patry Francis, Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Ron Rash, Bill Roorbach, Michael Mlliken, and Roberta Israeloff―to tell their stories of what happens between the action.
