Men in Love: Stories (Short Fiction), Cornelius, NC
Men in Love: Stories is linked by the theme of “men in love.” And not only romantic love between a man and woman, but also a man’s love for his children, his friends, and his work. Here you’ll find stories about queer love, lost love, stolen love, and love on the run.
“I hope this work provides insight into the lives of men struggling to find, receive, and express love during a time when traditional values surrounding masculinity are under scrutiny.”
