AMoreThis most recent collection of Michael Hogans stories is an occasion for celebration. Lucid, real and unforgettable, the characters are sometimes ordinary people trapped in their own lives waiting for the rescue that surely someday will come. A college girl tricked into becoming a confidential police informant, a teacher caught up in a Mossad plot in Argentina, a Jewish family trapped in Nazi-era Poland, all become as vivid as our neighbors. Two of the stories are about dogs, heroic and sensitive, travelling a long journey in the direction of what once was home. It is a book of infinite betrayals and surprises, some delightful, some heart-breaking. Two-time winner of the Ojo del Lago Fiction Award in Mexico.
