About the Book

From “Some Doo Wops And Those Rama Langa Ding Dongs” It was the 50s. Doo Wops fell from the sky, and we didn’t even notice that they lit our path, yet made no sense, but instead, merely soothed the painful edges and left us with the confusion of the 60s and the life beyond yet to come. From “How Many Times Are You Going To Get Married” After my second divorce, my mother asked me, “How many times are you going to get married?” I didn’t feel she was being sarcastic and so my response, “As many times as it takes,” wasn’t really called for. From “Coe and Larry” Coe sat at the kitchen table one morning staring at the back of the cereal box and turned up the volume of the new all-prayer radio station. She had been listing for two hours, waiting for something that would make it better. Ranging from coming of age and the difficulties of relationships, the stories in Coney Eyes are about the challenges of life, love, change, and becoming older.
