HOW DID IT COME TO THIS?
A panhandler has a plum situation in the city until she takes in a stray dog. A process server is caught relieving himself in an alley, a seemingly mundane event that triggers a cascade of ever-worsening misfortunes. During their getaway two bank robbers make a wrong turn and end up in the local St. Patrick's day parade - a serious problem since Black Irish are not welcome. These are some of the hapless characters in Not Waving, Drowning, Wm. Stage's new work of eight short stories, all set in and around St. Louis. Drawn from people he has either known or observed, the characters in these stories ring true, evoking drollery, pathos, and wonder.
