Tropics and Meridians: Short Stories
MetadataShow full metadata
Tropics and Meridians is a collection of short fiction that spans time and place (West Africa in the 1990s, Texas in the 1970s, Kansas in the 1960s). While each protagonist is unique—a father, a teenage girl, a child, the college age son of a wealthy businessman— they are united by their need to free themselves of existential burdens: grief, isolation, religion, society, and the desire to find meaning in what may be a meaningless world.
