This is a collection of 52 short stories. These stories were recorded to be shared in various writers’ groups and book clubs. To serve that purpose, they were written as first-person narrations with a minimal amount of direct dialog. The narrators speak with different voices - a homeless man, a defense lawyer, a high school student, an itinerant short-order cook, and many others. Most of these stories are light-hearted whimsy but that doesn’t stop them from taking a darker turn when necessary. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thom Whalen.

First published in 1961, this is a classic work which conveys the experience that mystics of all times have tried to put words to. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Lang.
