Short Stories

by Anita Page, ed.
Glenmere Press, August 2014, $14.95

If you think your family has problems, check out Family Matters from the New York/Tri State chapter of Sisters in Crime, edited by Anita Page, whose own story in the book, “Their Little Secret,” shows how far a girl might go to try to solve a problem in family relations. And Triss Stein opens with another problem-solver, one who discovers that solutions have unintended consequences. Terrie Farley Moran offers a car full of family violence, not all of it physical, in “Thanksgiving on Throgs Neck Bridge.” The book contains 20 strong stories that range all over New York City and through all levels of society.
