A Collection of Short Stories
Novelist Monte Dutton has long dabbled in songwriting. Most of his songs tell brief stories derived from observations of everyday life.
It occurred to the author that some of his songs could be expanded into short stories.
Dutton spins a yarn of a hapless but talented hitchhiker, of an old baseball coach charged with straightening out a spoiled slugger, of a co-ed who takes a walk on the wild side, and the owner of a fruitstand who tries to give some advice to a friend's grandson.
Longer Songs consists of eleven such tales, all of which grew out the author's songs.
