Ten stories deal with disenchanted people who must learn to handle loss, including an arguing couple, two abandoned boys, a chiropractor who fantasizes about a patient, and a cashier who can't stop talking about her pain.
Touching short stories that inspire the imagination!

This collection of short stories is great reading! The vivid imagery inspire the reader to read on and on until the entire book has been devoured! The stories about families and dysfunction are incredible and heartwrenching at times. I recomend this book for anyone who likes to be led on a journey into the unknown and end up in a place you knew all along.
Interesting, eccentric characters-a joy to read!
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 24 years ago
I bought this book because I was in a local bookstore, and I happened upon a reading-in progress. It was Lex Williford reading from "Macauley's Thumb". It sounded so interesting-I bought the book, and I was not dissapointed. The characters are everyday people with everyday problems, though a little eccentric. I have reread the book at least three times since purchasing it, and I see somthing new in the stories with each read. I hope that Mr. Williford has more stories up his sleeve.
