The characters in Three Songs by Hank Williams travel lonesome roads. Often packing little more than bitterness and pain, this rough-and- tumble collection of characters are all striving for peace and healing. They bespeak a genuine faith in the fundamental goodness of men and women in spite of frequent wrong turns and stretches of bad luck.
The stories in Calvin Wharton's first collection of short stories are written with a deft, confident hand and are set primarily against the rugged and diverse backdrop of the Canadian West. Wharton navigates through the geography of the prairies, the Rockies and the coast, and each story reflects a familiarity with its setting and taps into the promise that each offers.
