"Gentle Reader, welcome to the tender-hearted stories of Tony Press. In Crossing the Lines, hippies, poets, wanderers and thieves steal our hearts, not to break them, but to expand their beating chambers. Tony Press writes with care and precision about the quiet moments that swiftly and un-expectantly recalibrate our wavering lives. The strengths of these stories rest in their good humor and close attention to how we fall in love and how that love transports us into the dark and thorny depths of our own wilderness. Tony Press is the perfect guide for these unforgettable adventures." ~ Amber Dermont, The Starboard Sea and Damage Control

About the Author:

Tony Acarasiddhi Press lives near San Francisco and tries to pay attention. Sometimes he does. During a period of meditation on a retreat in 2003 he could barely sit still because a story was spilling into his consciousness. At the final bell he raced outside and wrote it down as fast as he could. He’s been writing ever since, primarily short stories, but also poems and essays. Since 2004 his efforts have appeared online and in print close to 100 times, including journals from at least five different countries. In 2014, Boston Literary Magazine nominated one of his stories for the Pushcart Prize. A few years earlier, JMWW had nominated another story for the Million Writers Award. He continues to follow a Buddhist path (hence the name Acarasiddhi), and struggles to sit still even without the intrusion of a story. His personal mantra is “keep walking” and he will do that as long as he can.

Review:

"I am partial to the short story form, and especially enjoy stories within a collection that express a common theme. Tony Press's book Crossing the Lines (Big Table Publishing) is a mix of thirty-three such stories, in which a variety of major and minor characters struggle over love and loss and grapple with truth, however evasive. ... The stories in this collection, in which Vietnam and post-Vietnam settings are palpably present, remind us how precious relationships are, and how every action changes the lives of others in perceptible ways."     Lou Gaglia, Toasted Cheese Literary Journal, June 2016

"One of the greatest things about this book is the feeling I got while reading that Tony Press and I could be sitting down chatting--or more likely walking--and I'd be listening to him tell me stories about friends, family members, or topics he's heard. There is a skillful flow to his stories.

There are constants in these stories: movement -- trains, cars, buses, or walking, and there is also an overriding understanding of the human condition. He shifts between time and location, focusing on themes such as lovers and war, amongst others."
         Paul Beckman, 101 Words Journal, April 2016
