Unconventional love is the focus of a new collection of wise and wonderful stories by Evanston author Christine Sneed. Not to be confused with romance, these tales paint perspectives on what draws people together and what roles we take. The characters are bold and interesting; the writing lovely and modern. You’ll find energy, wit, reflection, and originality in a work that was named one of 2010’s best surprises by TimeOut Chicago. Admire the sure-handed delicacy of Portraits of a Few of the People I’ve Made Cry.
