Fiction. "These are stories that Hemingway himself would envy," writes Cary C. Holladay. These fourteen short stories capture James McKinley at his best, featuring characters who travel from Nebraska to Spain and Kenya as they search for fulfillment and meaning in life. Whether they are the young man who comes of age in and around a 1950s bowling alley, a disabled veteran who takes stock of his career at Chambers Famous Bar in Kansas City, or a recently retired advertising executive with a fracturing marriage who tours Africa, McKinley's characters and their predicaments are unforgettable.
