Witchita Stories

By Troy James Weaver

198 pp., 5.5"x8.5", perfect bound

The short vignette-style tales in Troy James Weaver's literary debut combine to make an evocative brew of small town melancholy, working class gloom, and coming of age charm. Told through the eyes of a young man who yearns to find excitement, truth, and a deeper family bond in his life, Weaver's approachable and revealing stories, lists, fragments, and memories delve into the weird, funny, and sometimes unsettling world of a midwest kid finding his own path. One only has to remember their own childhood to understand what Weaver is trying to tell us. 

"These are true stories that don't have that self-aware sheen that most essays or memoirs have, and that gives nakedness them a surprising, more instinctive vibe. These are snapshots that combine humor, pathos, and pain." -Kevin Sampsell
