The Billion-Dollar Dream

Stories

by Robert Day

Price: $15.95, 195 pages

ISBN: 978-1-943491-01-8

Day’s characters can be hoarders, filthy, larcenous and adulterous.  But there always emerges a moral point, a discovery or self-discovery, a quick drawing of the breath at what has been revealed or irretrievably lost.  Just as Paul in the story “Billion Dollar Dream” digs an elevator shaft and the narrator of “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” digs graves, author Day goes deep for the dirt and watches the sunrise from the hole.

"Day gives an unflinching look at how life is lived on the other side of the tracks as his well-drawn characters confront crossroads moments that compel them to make decisions that catapult them out of their familiar reality into something entirely different.”—ForeWord Reviews
