Home at Last, a new collection of short fiction, offers thirteen vivid tales that illustrate the challenges assumed by ordinary people in extraordinary situations. In each story, vivid-drawn characters confront unique dilemmas: the woman who travels far to reconnect with the child she abandoned years before; the writer who seeks salvation in a neighbor's unorthodox request; the amnesiac who defies shadowy oppressors in a mysterious room; the businessman who pleads his disgraced brother's case to a higher power; the wife who mulls secrets while studying her husband's sleeping form; the mother who protects her children at all costs from a threat next door; the four-year-old boy who believes he can fly.
In his first collection of stories, author Chet Kozlowski renders haunting narratives of unique (yet recognizable) characters fulfilling their individual destinies.
"As timely as last night's water-boarding or tomorrow morning's hurricane ... each episode explodes, creating immense but subtle drama."
-Wayne Greenhaw, author of King of Country and The Thunder of Angels: The Montgomery Bus Boycott and the People Who Broke the Back of Jim Crow
