Item description for Sky Full Of Burdens by Meg Moceri...

Left behind by the hyper-acceleration of a new century are the lives encountered in Sky Full of Burdens. In one way or another facing extinction or obsolescence, the men and women in these stories could be described as vestigial: the proprietor of a failing grocery in a town literally about to be erased from the map; a man isolated by a physical handicap who stakes much of his identity to an engineering quirk on a local highway. Exile from their comfort zones brings them into direct contact with irrevocable mistakes, deferred realizations, and unexpected connections with the humanity and fallibility of others. The interplay of painful losses and discovered compensations is echoed in the alternately bleak and beautiful landscape of northern Michigan.

"When you begin a Meg Moceri story, you immediately enter the lives of its characters, and you automatically share their quandaries, hopes, and regrets. When you reach the end, you feel an ache in your heart that will last for some time. Her rendering of the flawed souls in these pages is both severe and sympathetic, tragic, and, at times, unexpectedly comic. The author's piercing intelligence is matched by her mastery of the language. She writes sentences that get directly to the heart of the matter, with phrases so well turned that they make you see afresh the way we sad humans stumble along life's path."--David Carkeet
