The Art of Storytelling

In Short Stories of Life, Love, and Remembrance, gifted author Alexander Rassogianis presents sixteen beautifully crafted tales that bring to life characters grappling with the beauty and tragedy of everyday life, from the shattering trauma of war to the delicate anguish of seeing change in a longtime friendship. From a simple tale of nostalgia centered on childhood memories of a wondrous tree swing to an intriguing tale of a bond forged in suffering during a horrible ocean crossing; from the United States to Athens and Russia; from acts of redemption to amazing coincidences, these stories embrace, celebrate, and illuminate the moments that make us deeply human and richly alive.
