Join us as we celebrate the book launch of Lynn Sloan's story collection, This Far Isn't Far Enough.
In the fourteen powerful and diverse short stories in this collection, Lynn Sloan writes about people on the edge and ready to leap--a once-successful Lowcountry cook seeking a comeback with a popup restaurant; a failed actor assessing his life; a mother trying to connect with her estranged son; and a naive WWII army grunt trapped in a no-win battle with his superiors. Affecting and memorable, This Far Isn’t Far Enough demonstrates Lynn Sloan’s penetrating understanding of loss, endurance, and the undefeated spirit.
