Item description for Mister Good Morning: Stories of Flesh, Blood and Holy Spirit by Murray A. Pura...
This is a collection of stories about men and women and children who stumble upon crossroads. Their stories are parable, they are allegory, they are realism and short fiction -- and they are stories that will enter into you and make you part of them, so that the mystery and the brightness, the living and the dying, the searching and the praying, the love and the anger and the majesty become your own. It is another morning and another place, a rich and penetrating landscape of the spirit.
Seventeen of these stories have been published over the past ten years in periodicals, the other eight have never been in print before and were written by the author especially for this edition.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mister Good Morning: Stories of Flesh, Blood and Holy Spirit?
Mister Good Morning Feb 21, 2001
Mister Good Morning by Murray Pura is one of the finest collections of short stories that I have read in the past year. Pura's characters have a realness about them that most authors fail to achieve: the characters practically warm the page in your hands. Pura avoids the maudlin and emotive pitfalls that often affect writing dealing with 'transitory' experiences. I look forward to his next collection of short stories and hope that he can achieve the same authenticity and vivacity that he has here. Highly recommended.
