Taradiddles and Tales of My West Virginia Home

Authored by Mr. Richard E. Smith Jr.

"I Will Open My Mouth in Parables" is a collection of fictional short stories of events that take place in or near the small town of Quick, West Virginia. Most of the stories occur during the 1950's.

The stories are written in the first person by "Richie Smith" and take place in or near his hometown of Quick, WV. Within each story you'll meet the interesting people for whom the story is named. Joshua, the unborn child who's mother is a Disgrace; Johnny, who encounters the Devil's Assistant; Lefty, a prophet of the True Religion; Uncle Ron, who shunned the opportunity of being a Debonair; and Robby, the Prodigal Peacenik come home.

The stories are written in such a manner that as you read them, you may come to believe that you were there, that you meet these people, and that you lived through the experience yourself. These tales will make you laugh and make you cry, and make you wish you had known the people who appear in these true-to-life parables - if only they had been real.
