Scrabble Lessons

In Scrabble Lessons, characters who were confined to comfortable patterns are suddenly thrown off their games. A single man’s life is complicated when his sister shows up carrying all the old family baggage and a terrible new secret. A young woman resists the temptation to slice into her lover’s pricey tomato by dissecting the relationship instead.

A poetry chapbook, a chocolate salesman, a stolen bicycle: all reawaken passion in lonely characters.
