What's a man to do when his life is just work and trouble? Some hunt, some fish, some drink, some gamble. Richard Chiappone writes about them all--men living their lives, doing what they have to, and getting through the day. These characters are real, gritty, imperfect working men, who make the wrong choices and mess up. These stories about real people, tough and resilient, making hard choices, are a powerful and inspiring collection.
