Abstract
The stories in this collection are largely centered around individuals who have or on the brink of mistakes (or what they perceive as mistakes). These characters navigate their respective worlds with a combination of cynicism and vulnerability that often forces them to reexamine their relationships with family members, friends, and lovers. I am interested in how humor can potentially steer a narrative in unforeseeable directions while exposing to the reader truths about the characters that they themselves might not realize.
