Scouting for the Reaper – Jacob M. Appel

This collection of expertly written short stories is a must read for any fan of classic literary fiction.

These stories are written in a classic American style similar to the works of John Updike. No wonder this author has won several awards for his writing.

We look through the eyes of a variety of characters, including teenagers learning about the complexities of adult relationships, a middle-aged wife trying to make sense of her empty nest, and a truck driver trying to make his delivery. Each story speaks with its own voice about the inner workings of the characters, how they see the world around them and their place within it. Unintentional soul searching is often the most profound.

ReaperI would not be surprised if this book ends up on the curriculum of a college literary course.
