So They Say

Collected Stories

Authored by Jack Andrew Urquhart

So They Say follows southern-born Rex Fordham on a five-decades-long journey across America, to Europe, and back again. The product of 1950s conformism and self-repression, perennially bulky and awkward as a child and adolescent, Rex sheds a burdensome past to become a successful architect, husband and father; but the same unbendable laws of human attraction that threatened his youth torment him as an adult. When a same-sex affair and an unspeakable loss destroy his marriage, Rex must abandon his search for place and personhood or change course. Post divorce life in San Francisco-where Rex finds hope and passion in the person of entrepreneur Rand Osmond-offers a chance for happiness; but will Rex's fear of failure and lingering feelings of unworthiness derail his chances for self-acceptance and love-especially when loss once again comes calling?
