In The Camera Store and Other Stories As Times Pass, author Richard Selinka presents a rich collection of stories, some autobiographical, some based on others lives, and many purely imagined. The first story, Why I Never Made It in Showbiz, recounts a young boy s brush with fame in 1930s radio; the next is a fond remembrance of an inner-city youth baseball team and its inspirational leader. Selinka delves into the supernatural in Ghost Story when a dying historian is visited by the ghosts of the subjects of his books, while humorously exploring mythology when a drunkard converses with a mysterious old man at a country club in A Golf Story. The Condo and the Seabird is a gentle and moving reflection on aging, as a retirement community resident finds himself caring for an injured gull. The long title story tells the tragic yet ultimately triumphant tale of two refugees flight from Hitler s Austria, and the courage of those they left behind. The Camera Store is an often moving collection that entertains and transports the reader.
