The Beggar's Bowl is a short story about two men, Manson and DeGere, who get together so that DeGere can pass on stolen goods and Manson can listen to tales of DeGere's adventurous life. Manson live vicariously through DeGere's tales and realizes that he doesn't really mind if the stories are true or not. The evening progresses and the two men become tired. Suddenly, there is a knock at the door and Manson finds out what lies and adventure can lead to.

Gerald Rice's story is well structured. Rice focuses on creating vivid characters and realistic dialogue. A few oddly constructed sentences make the reader pause and it somewhat disrupts the flow of the story.

Overall, however, The Beggar's bowl is an interesting story with a twist at the end.

The concept is simple enough, and the way the story is told is beautiful.
The infatuation the protagonist had with the "villain' is laid out in a way that makes you wonder if the "villain" is everything he makes himself to be. Is he, or isn't he?
I have often said that I have a love-hate relationship with short stories because a good short story has to balance carefully between resolving the plot and leaving the reader satisfied but wanting more.
This short story did all that. Some of the dialogue was a bit off, but the twist at the end more than made up for any moments where I had to pause and read again.
I look forward to reading more from this author.

DeGere, a highly successful thief, spends time sipping wine and reminiscing over past jobs and all the lovely ladies he has acquired. Mason a fence lavishes every detail living out his wildest dreams through DeGere. Before the night ends things turn bad and they both find out the true hazards of being a thief.

Rice really knows how to craft characters and their dialogue. He strikes a perfect balance of adding enough details and action that makes this a great read.

I loved The Beggars Bowl. Gerald's way of describing people make me feel I can actually picture them in the room with me. Beggars Bowl has such a great story to it I was actually disappointed that it ended so soon. Had that little twist ending that never get tire of. If you want to read something that will keep in your mind, read The Beggar's Bowl or anything by Gerald Rice.

I stumbled at the phrase 'a life of unencumbrances' and fell to skimming at the unembarrassed coincidences and shameless lecture. It's is neophyte writing. If you read for plot alone you may like this; tastes vary.
