“Penny Sidoli has
brought out her best with this collection of wildly original tales
packed with descriptions of the broad landscape of the American West
and lively characters who jump off the page into your heart.”
“Light and wise.”
The Intersection of
Daydream and Driving Slow is a collection of short stories with the
setting of the contemporary American West. In each story the reader
will discover a wider West full of possibility and imaginative
adventure, a mix of scruffy, rough, tense, and smooth like chopped
nuts on ice cream. Each story spills its love, created with
strong, compelling writing. Penny Sidoli is a creative force gentle
as the sunset, remarkable as a gallop. It’s all about the
southwest desert, the northwest forest, all about solitude, music,
love, biologists, geologists, criminals, magic, birds, boats, red
dresses, old trucks and ranches.
Also available at
bookstores and on Amazon, a book
for kids who like adventure and history
