Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Gabe G. Kubichek is becoming a very fine writer - almost by default! His previous novels (`Dreaming of Amerika: Fleeing from Communist Hungary, Childhood Dream Becomes A Reality' and `Gold and Where You Find It: There's Gold in Them Thar Hills') have introduced a man whose experiences as an immigrant from a war torn country and a strong believer in the joys of finding freedom have provided the fodder for some poignant, touching, warmly humorous, and always entertaining tales. In this collection of short stories Kubichek ventures further into his own kaleidoscopic experiences as well as sharing stories that have been passed down through his family.

His FRAGMENTS OF LIFE: TRUE SHORT STORIES takes the reader to such disparate places as Siberia (the opening story, The Traveler' is one of the finest in the series), Bali, Hungary, Canada, California, Russia and other locales that become more familiar with every visit. As with all good collections of reminiscences Kubichek honors his family and friends, with special tender homage to his artist father. If there is a thread that connects these thirty-eight short stories, it is the trait that imbues all of Kubichek's writing: there is sanctity of the human spirit that is indomitable. Reading Gabe Kubichek restores our faith in ourselves and in our fellowman. Grady Harp, March 10
