In his first collection, S.L. Kerns portrays unforgettable characters on the double-edged sword of both success and failure, characters who put their hearts and hopes on the line in pursuit of individual desires. Some seek fame while others seek peace. Some seek vengeance, and some crave affection. "Angel and the Weeper" follows a failed Thai actress with a strange new business and she is unwilling to give up on her big dream. "Nothing to Be Proud of" tells of a so-called war hero from 'Nam wanting nothing more than to put the horrors he witnessed far behind him. In the title story, the main character has obtained a major record deal and should be overjoyed, but time on the road and singing of his sorrows only remind him of the wife he lost. "Scrap Metal Memories" introduces a victim of arson seeking retribution for his lost house and the memories it once held. Don't miss these gripping tales and many more.
