Love & Profanity by Nick Healy

imageHere are more than forty short, brilliant, and unforgettable true stories from writers famous and on-the-rise. Here is the intensity of daily life. Here are transformative moments arising from the mundane. Here are strange and surprising tales that tap into universal truths. Here are teenagers in full splendor and horror. Here they are, bursting with love and profanity.

A wonderful collection of short stories. All of the stories were well written, ranging from powerful, humorous, to tender, sweeping various decades as well as a wide age span of individual characters. I smiled, laughed out loud, became teary eyed with the various messages and content. More than a few hit home, most I could relate to in some form. A collection transporting you to days of youth, or jogging your memory of a friend or of your own child. Provoking, affecting and fun, a collection not to be missed. Great authors spinning fabulous yarns. Short story fans and/or those fond of reminiscing of teen years will undoubtedly enjoy Love & Profanity.
