Strategies Against Extinction

Michael Nye’s debut short-story collection is nine stories about people who find themselves at difficult turning points in their lives—times when they are faced with hard choices, broken promises, and the fear of self-destruction. These diverse characters include a war veteran turned radio broadcaster, a film projectionist, a second-generation comic book store owner, a vascular surgeon at one of Boston’s premier hospitals, an ex-baseball player turned financial advisor. The stories in this collection are startling and realistic evocations of the lives of memorable characters, told with rich observation, energy, compassion, and grace.
