Good short stories can give you a great mental vacation and they can fit into almost any schedule. For this summer I would pick Fetching Molly. Local author, Michael Fels, has a knack for creating fascinating characters. In Fetching Molly, his new book of short stories, his kaleidoscope of characters is marvelous by themselves and wondrous as they slide into their connected picture.

The bittersweet title story, Fetching Molly brings on a hard squeeze to the heart and an eloquent close to the book.”
