• North to Lakeville

by Jason Kapcala

Debut short fiction collection by Kapcala. Lakeville has fallen on hard times. But do not tell that to the locals. Though they’re fond of claiming that nothing ever happens in this corner of Pennsylvania, their stories suggest otherwise. There is the former blues guitar player who never opens his case. The classically trained clarinetist who runs the lakeside bait and tackle shop, even though he hates fishing. The snake wrangler who worries about the bad intentions of his wife’s artsy friends. The firefighter who fears retirement more than death. The grandmother who is determined to hike to the top of Fernridge Mountain. And the alcoholic excavation foreman who whittles toys for his estranged children while investigating the suspicious death of his boss. Their intersecting stories, a full stringer of unfulfilled dreams and missed opportunities, are the kind of fish tales best told over a pint at Bebes Tavern or in boat on Grady Lake during those quiet moments before dusk.
