From slice-of-life vignettes to narratives with suspense, the short
stories in author David Luck's fiction collection stem from his
observations of life around him. After moving from an isolated
mountain cabin to a home near Sloan's Lake in Denver, Colorado,
Luck was intrigued by the activity surrounding the lake. Luck used
these situations as fodder for this book.
"Scraps'" first story, "Angelica and Carlos," introduces the
young Angelica as she waits for her son to be returned from a
weekend visit with his father, Carlos. When Carlos and Roberto are
more than an hour late, Angelica wonders if she will ever see her
son again. In "Balby, England," an American couple, married for
forty-one years, travel to England for the first time and become
the unwitting targets of a beautiful thief. "Going Postal" tells
the tale of Maggie, a homeless woman; Jasper, a retired gentleman
who has taken up in-line skating; and Merna, a cantankerous mail
carrier; and how their lives intersect in an unusual way.
Infused with sensory images woven with beautiful language, the
stories in the collection give a glimpse into situations, people,
and places with which we can all identify.
