Unforgettable: Short Stories

Looking for a great summer read? “Unforgettable: Short Stories,” written by Minneapolis author and friend of Jones-Harrison Paulette Bates Alden, is a collection of short stories detailing “the presence of the past, the power of mercy, and the enduring nature of love. They follow Miriam Batson, the protagonist of Paulette Alden’s earlier collection, FEEDING THE EAGLES, into middle age, as she navigates such experiences as the suicide attempt of a student of hers; the death of a beloved maid from her Southern childhood; the shock and anger resulting from a job rejection possibly due to sex discrimination; and the sudden death of her father. Five of the stories track Miriam’s efforts to stave off putting her mother in a nursing home, as her mother succumbs to Alzheimer’s. Anyone who has experienced such a situation will relate to the poignancy, guilt, and sometimes painful humor involved in caring for a failing parent.” To learn more, visit Paulette’s website here.
