Summary (From the publisher):

In the vivid canvases of Eric Prochaska's stories, the passage of time and inevitable loss are set against the sublimity of vastness--the trackless desolation of the Arizona desert, a starry nighttime sky, the pitiless arrow of time, the unfathomable space between human hearts, subjects from which less venturesome spirits shrink. His lives are lived with deep and thoughtful intensity, their yearnings never quite achieved but never abandoned. Both he and his memorable characters, like the thief in "Nothing But Infinity," display an integrity clearly uncompromising, a stoic resolve in the face of cold immensity.

These stories hearken back, free from today's self-indulgent fashion, to the lapidary stories of an earlier, pre-postmodern era in America, names like Sherwood Anderson and Carson McCullers and Faulkner in a tender mood. Yet the voice is fresh and in tune with the uprooted, polarized America of the New Millennium. Despite its prevailing somber mien, the ache of faded aspirations, Prochaska's fiction is artfully balanced by an undertone of peacefulness, an ultimately liberating affirmation of the life one has been dealt.
