Where We Live

Where We Live is master story-teller W. D. Wetherell's fifth story collection, and his first in ten years, bringing together the best of his recent fictions. The stories exemplify the qualities readers and critics have praised in the past, while continuing to explore new directions in style, theme, and characterization. He illumines contemporary American life and culture by focusing on the forgotten places and people living on the edges, from a young Somali immigrant who finds an unlikely mentor in his attempt to come to terms with his new home, to a widower faced with the everyday challenges of his first day alone.
