There is real diversity in the short stories that make up the Webley .45 collection. A young man, who was sexually abused as a boy, dreams of killing his assailant. The confession of a black man who has "passed" as white for much of his life, and a gay man struggle to be honest with his partner, his father, and himself. On the lighter side, there are endings that surprise us and the chronicle of a practical joker. Most importantly, these diverse tales are brought to life by unique and credible characters. You may even find that one or two of them "will drift like phantom companions along the edges of your mind" long after you meet them in this captivating book.
