Many Voices Project #125: It Takes You Over
Synopses & Reviews
"It Takes You Over builds like a deceptively quiet, mesmerizing snowfall."—Nicole Helget, The Turtle Catcher
An elderly man caught with a hooker, a daughter outsmarting the IRS—Nick Healys stories are about rough relationships and the insular lifestyle of small towns, proving that "Minnesota Nice" isnt all the state contains.
Nick Healy's collection of short stories explores family, love, death, and sex in a highly detailed environment set in Minnesota.
