1979: Short Story Collection by Steve Anderson

1979

 

Stories to take you back…

 

The best thing I can say about a short story is when it makes me want to read more about the characters or the storyline.  Steve Anderson has written a group of stories that do exactly that.

Set in various parts of the country, mostly the Midwest, Anderson recreates the mood and sense of the late 70’s. While each story stands alone, there is a common thread of innocence and naivete about each of the main characters. I found myself relating to every story as they invoked a memory from my life.

Anderson writes with an incredible insight into what it is like to be a teenager, both from the male and female perspective. These stories will make you laugh, cry, and as in my case, take you back in time.
