Of Dust and Tides
by A.G. Russo
Rating: 4.6 #ad

KINDLE

“One of the best books I have read in a long time. A very good author and very good stories. Will be looking for more from this writer.” by Amazon Customer

“Of Dust and Tides is a well written, engaging potpourri of short stories by nascent author, A.G. Russo. The underlying theme of the stories is expressed in the epigraph by Vladimir Nabokov: The breaking of a wave cannot explain the whole sea. Understanding part of something doesn’t mean you understand the whole. Many of the characters in the stories have experienced trauma or family dysfunction, which only defines part of their lives. Other themes are the search for “normality” and the realization that what you have may be good enough. Jane Austen and the Twilight Zone also make an appearance. Keep up the great work!” by Amazon Customer
