The Pursuit of Truth featuring fiction from Kristopher Jansma & Jessica Francis Kane

What is the difference between fiction and creative storytelling?  Jansma's quicksilver narrator writes himself into a hole and back again, reinventing his friends and his own life nearly at a whim.  Questioning the nature of life, love, and friendship, Unchangeable Spots is an unforgettable debut.


In her 13 stories, Kane (The Report) explores how ordinary connections made or not made can influence the course of a life. How close can we come to love, success, happiness, forgiveness?  From an older woman who offers a corner of her lawn to a Croatian immigrant, to a college graduate developing a relationship with his dry cleaner and her son, Kane writes stories that make you pause and marvel the many paths a life can take.
