Book: The Phone - And Other Short Stories by Gary Paul Bryant
|5 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Gary Paul Bryantabout this book: This books should make you go 'What the...?" in a good way. It's a social commentary on digitally abandoned children, senile old men left to their own devices, desperate young super-egos trying to live forever or get out of this world as fast as they can. All this and it's funny too!
"The nine stories in this collection easily captivated my imagination during their short span. The writing is skillful and the editing was perfectly done so there's no grammatical hiccups to knock you out of the story at just the wrong time." - Cat Jones Top 500 Amazon reviewer
While none of these eight short stories compares to a Greek tragedy, the author delivers where it counts- humor. In Stall, we explore a typical day at the end of time. In The Phone, Cyril discovers his own childhood phone at a local antique store and gets a startling surprise when he makes his first call.
Gleason Snickell shows us what life is really all about for digitally abandoned children in 'Gleason Snickell and the Search for Love'. The Bitter Climb finds an unhappy young man getting some important choices made for him. Robert Levenplatter gets to live just a bit longer in Awkward: The First Resurrection of Robert Levenplatter.
"If journalists can make things up these days, why can't fiction writers?" - Gary
