Collection of short fiction set in Princeton


Interlinked short stories and a novella that all take place in Princeton, NJ. Some of the characters are connected to the town through the university, others through history or circumstance. All are richly developed with a light comical touch that goes to the heart of human desire and ambition. There's the fabric shop owner of the title story who lands the chance to go soaring with the daring new minister at church. There's the young lifeguard whose mother takes matters into her own hands when thwarted by the bicycle advisory committee in town. And there's the man who plays George Washington crossing the Delaware but longs to be a man of action  himself. In the longest story, a woman with a secret blog at work is afraid that what she reveals may give away her identity and put the man she's fallen in love with in jeopardy if her possessive, abusive boss finds out.

True, he was young and new and had made some unpopular changes to their church in Princeton like allowing children up in the sacristy and moving the altar rail down to the nave of the church where it was more handicap accessible. She suspected this was why no one was signing up to go for a ride. Heaven only knew what stunts he was liable to pull up there.
