More About We Could've Been Happy Here by Keith Lesmeister
 
 
 
Overview

In his first collection of short fiction, Keith Lesmeister plows out a distinctive vision of the contemporary Midwest. A recovering addict chases down a herd of runaway cows with a girl the same age as his estranged daughter. A middle-aged couple rediscovers their love for one another through the unlikely circumstance of robbing a bank. A drunken grandmother goads her grandson into bartering his leftover booze for a kayak. The daughter of a deployed soldier wages a bloody war on the rabbits ravaging her family's farm.

These stories peer into the lives of those at the margins-the broken, the resigned, the misunderstood. At turns hopeful and humorous, tender and tragic, We Could've Been Happy Here illuminates how we are shaped and buoyed by our intimate connections with others--both those close to us, and those we hardly know.
