Believers: a novella and stories
© 1997
read/print an excerpt - >>

The seven stories and novella in Believers revel in the surfaces of seemingly ordinary characters while uncovering their bedrock of passion, madness, levity, and grief: the young women with a sweetly nurturing boyfriend who may have a secret history of violence; the housewife whose upstairs neighbor is either a child-killer or a pathetic fabulist. In the main novella the narrator works to piece together his father's history, and tells the story of a Catholic priest whose involvement with a sinister, wealthy couple leads him away from his promise of faith.
