Garden Boulevard: Stories by Angela Amman
Throughout fifteen short stories, Garden Boulevard explores the choices women face and the consequences of the ones they make. In “More Than A Peck,” a recipe becomes silent rebellion and examination of a wife’s growing resentment. In “The Installation,” a reunion with an old flame ignites a mother’s regrets about the career--and relationship--she left behind for a sprawling yard. From society weddings to strollers in the park, Angela Amman collects the stories strewn along a city block like discarded rose petals, considering the knife-edge of hope and anguish in a woman’s heart with compassion and an unflinching eye.
