The Impressionists

Hello Goodkindles Readers,

 

I'd like to introduce you to my short story collection The Impressionists.

 

They say never judge a book by its cover but it's something many of us are guilty of at some point or another. Of course, judging a person by their appearance is equally foolhardy, as none of us can know the personal turmoil behind the public façade of a perfect stranger. But what if we could…

 

The Impressionists is collection of six poignant, sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes heart-warming and frequently witty first person short stories from award-winning author Andrew Biss.

 

Each of these stories juxtaposes the public face with the private, conflicted person behind it.

 

BIG GIRL:

 

An overweight young woman named Peggy appraises her recently purchased self-help book, "The Bigger the Better."

 

THE REPLICA:

 

An abused wife reflects on her past and deconstructs the emergence of the replica that now haunts her present.

 

A SMALL ACT OF VANDALISM:

 

Malcolm, a gentle, middle-aged soul with a troubled mind, keeps his mother's remains sealed in a small porcelain box. What he keeps hidden among his memories, however, isn't so easily contained.

 

ONE NIGHT ONLY:

 

Denny, a prisoner on death row in an Alabama State Penitentiary spends his final moments reviewing his career as a serial killer in an interview with himself.

 

ORGAN FAILURE:

 

A woman in the viewing room of a funeral home addresses the body of her lover in the coffin before her.

 

WYWH:

 

Eileen, a reclusive, middle-aged divorcee, still haunted by the loss of her son, discovers a new life in the virtual world.
