'Signed, Sealed and Delivered reads like a sly, late-night conspiracy between Hemingway and O. Henry." -Artspike Magazine
In Signed, Sealed and Delivered, author Larry Gross explores the lives of everyday people, but as each story unfolds, we find there's nothing ordinary about them at all. Intriguing and interesting, each story delves into interpersonal relationships: A traveling salesman meets a young girl in a bar and deception encompasses the beginning and end of their encounter An unhappily married man fantasizes about a woman he's watching while they both wait for the doors to open at a popular discount store An alcoholic father finds the perfect gift for his son A cheating husband becomes concerned about a photograph repeatedly sent to his wife An AIDS volunteer visits his client on a Christmas afternoon for the last time Candles on a cake alter a young boy's life forever A businessman comes to realize an old friend is really just an opportunist and has a long-delayed confrontation.
Throughout the fifteen stories in his collection, Gross delivers the absorbing tales of these seemingly-common people in his straightforward style and with absolute clarity.
