The Glitter and Other Stories serves up an offering of ten stories showcasing life's broad palette-from friendships to frustrations, healings, loves, memories, sorrows, and sensitivities. From the interior of a bar to the majesty of a trip to India, author Curt Maury has created a fictional collection ripe with setting and sensory detail. The title story, "The Glitter," finds social services worker Emily Robinson in the lavish home of Trixie Trent, the leading lady of musicals. Here Emily discovers more than she wants to know about this celebrated star. In "The Great Hollow," Greg and Petra, husband and wife, meet in a bar and attempt to come to terms with their childlessness. In Tel Aviv, American David Glick tries to soothe the dying soul of Luigi Roselli, a fellow American injured in a bomb blast in the story "The Blessed." This purposeful collection, with poems included, provides a unique insight into the human condition and its powerful emotions.
