Suffering Fools

A woman running a halfway house of paroled sexual predators is left wondering if her favorite has committed his most unthinkable crime yet. A groundskeeper, who has just discovered that his ex is pregnant, digs up an infant's tombstone inscribed with his own name. A traumatic traffic collision sends an aging couple back into their decades-long marriage. Whether it be a dying man spying on two teenage lovers, or a new mother running from her colicky infant. the nine stories in Suffering Fools spring from the dark corners of our psyches, revealing the fears and contradictions that give shape to unconditional love.
