About this title

Synopsis:

Extraordinary stories about the people of the American West.

From the Back Cover:

In this memorable collection of short stories, Pete Fromm reconfirms his reputation as one of the West's most intriguing and talented young writers.Dry Rain, winner of a 1998 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award, looks at ordinary people in extraordinary situations: the good son who dutifully entertains his visiting parents, all the while at pains to obscure that his wife has just left him; a family outing that turns to terror as a child disappears into a cornfield; the everyday cruelty of two young men determined to find evil in a brotherly Hutterite community; a husband and wife at a tense crossroads in their lives, confronted by an eerie neighbor with a passion for snake hunting.These are stories about family, love, fealty, commitment, and heroism, all against the backdrop of the everyday people of the American West. Fromm's singular accomplishment in this collection is to make these "ordinary" human beings seem so much more than that - and, by extension, to deepen our own "ordinary" lives. (6 1/4 X 9 1/4, 228 pages)
