Ploughshares Solos Omnibus Volume 3

Ploughshares Solos Omnibus Volume 3

Nine long stories and essays, originally published in the acclaimed Ploughshares Solos digital series, create this third annual print collection.

Take a trip across Israel with the deceased Izzy Gam as he tries to find an unoccupied place to rest, visit a ruined hotel in a washed-up resort in Puerto Rico, and become immersed in the lives of two very different families living in a marginalized ethnic community in Kansas City. Meet protagonists that range from a small-town Mennonite girl to a performance artist walking the fine line between success and sell-out. These and other stories play with narrative while urging readers to think about the role cultural assumptions and myths play in everyday life.
