Ebenezer has a plane to catch and winds up at a Caribbean resort for the generously-figured.  Marva is trapped by a pie safe at the bottom of her basement stairs.  Mister Fisher hopes to cash in on his momma’s dog’s pedigree.  Henry’s wife goes missing. Derwin gets blown up by bug foggers.  These are just a few of the characters in this 15-story collection who are at home near rivers and bayous that hold secrets or become escape routes into and out of relationships.  The characters in these stories worm their way into your psyche.  They don’t always do the right (or legal) thing, but they act for the right reasons.
