Currently looking for a publisher for 605 Freeway Stories –a collection of short stories set in in the southeastern Los Angeles County no man’s land before Orange County around the 605 Freeway.
Stella Ortiz-Taylor had the following to say about 605 Freeway Stories:
“The freeway is the controlling image in this collection, suggesting both unity and fragmentation. This irony permeates each story, sometimes spilling over into humor. Voice is varied and intimate, character intriguing.”
Nineteen of the twenty-one stories have been published individually in different small presses (some available as links here) in the last couple of years.
