9781512191127: Switching Lanes: and Other Stories

A young basketball player seizes his moment and makes a move that shocks his coach and fellow players. An ornery, independent old man struggles to escape the confines of a nursing home. In a school dormitory, a group of bullied boys plan a revolution against their older oppressors. A devoted musician watches his band disintegrate under the pressures of “real life.”

These stories and more are the work of Paul Uche, a talented young author taken from the world too soon. Uche’s tight control of language, his crisp, incisive thinking, and his playful use of even the simplest words results in extraordinary tales of what would otherwise be ordinary life experiences.

Seemingly day-to-day events become exceptional under Uche’s skillful guidance, offering something to every reader—regardless of their social status, race, or gender. These are tales that linger in one’s memory, tempting the audience to return and discover new subtleties of emotion with each reading.

Trapped in Uche’s insightful tales are moments that stir the soul to laughter and tears. Switching Lanes and Other Stories is more than a collection of short stories by a talented author—it is a compilation of the human spirit in all its myriad moods.

Paul Uchechukwu Uche passed away June 19, 2014, in Toronto, Canada. The young writer was twenty-three years old.

Born in Warri, Nigeria, Uche traveled extensively throughout his short life, spending time in Nigeria, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Oman, the United States, and Canada. After graduating from the American-British Academy International Baccalaureate program in Oman, Uche chose to study at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, where he majored in chemical engineering with a minor in creative writing.

During his time at the American-British Academy, Uche played on the basketball, volleyball, and soccer teams, winning the Athlete of the Year Award. He was an executive member of the ABA Students Against Prejudice club and won the prestigious ABA Citizenship Award.

Uche’s first short story, “Murder Leads to Guilt,” was published in the August 2006 edition of the International Journal for Teachers of English Writing Skills.
