Emily's Stitches: The Confessions of Thomas Calloway and Other Stories
Emily's Stitches: The Confessions of Thomas Calloway is a collection of interrelated short stories about a teenaged boy
growing up in rural Georgia and faced with the challenges of approaching adulthood. When he stumbles across a young homeless girl, he must decide how best to protect her from the world
despite the fact that he barely understands the world himself.
Also included in this collection are five other short stories and three poems including "Requiem," an authorized sequel of sorts to Scott Thompson's novel Young Men Shall See.
Other notable selections include "Negative Space," which tells the story of a recently divorced photographer who finds himself sharing Thanksgiving dinner with his ex-wife's family; "Gods for Sale, Cheap," a humorous look at American religion and its commercialization, and "Misdirection," the story of two down-on-their luck hitmen and their quest for identity.
