The Things We Do That Make No Sense
“Relentlessly authentic and peopled with true characters, these stories demand readers’ sympathy and engagement. Schuitema’s understanding of the eccentricities and vicissitudes of Michigan add unforgettable color to these perceptive, lyrical narratives.”—Monica McFawn, author of Bright Shards of Someplace Else
We are guilty of actions that make no sense. We perform acts of beauty and acts of ugliness. We give in to hidden ambitions, latent hungers,
and clumsy grasps at insight.
March 2017, 6x9, 178 pp.
