THE MAN WHO WORE NO PANTS...... I initially didn't know what to make of this one so ending up reading it twice. I'm still scratching my head a bit though. Great writing and an interesting cast of characters..........a former Chinese government worker, now an owner of a Mexican restaurant, separated from his wife, looking after their fat son (his weight is being addressed) and buying a lake house from a dying man who won't leave the abode, until he's passed. Other characters include a private detective and a Swedish woman, who dances naked. I could read it another half a dozen times and still be none the wiser. I can't say I didn't enjoy it though.
CRY ON DEMAND .... brotherly love
EVERYWHERE LONELY....... sisterly love
ALL THE DIFFERENT WAYS LOVE CAN FEEL.... baseball and parental support
VIRGINIA IS A DIFFERENT COUNTRY..... a family of three, the independent, strong-willed mother signs up to the Army reserve prior to Saddam and Iraq invading Kuwait, invoking a strong sense of abandonment and anger from the young son, already disappointed and bewildered at his mum's refusal to marry his father.
FIVE O’CLOCK LIGHTNING.... a shared love of baseball and an adult son supporting his father's improbable dream of glory
LOVE BRUISES.... friendship or more, boundaries, fear, disappointment and an impulsive act
NAME-CALLING... baseball and corporate greed
LARCENY BY TRICK... school basketball, public humiliation, a coach who urges our man to never quit
77 LIVES ON THE ROCK RIVER...... a blind storage auction, coping with loneliness, a touch of Ronald Reagan
JUST GUS..... a father and son road trip to college, some moments of awkwardness and tenderness
I won't claim to understand all these stories or whatever message if any the author was trying to convey. I did enjoy them though. Several of them feature the same family at various points in their lives. Maybe some of these are semi-autobiographical in nature.
Tribulations on love, friendship and relationships, with disappointment, anger, concern, support and every other emotion that you've ever felt for your family or friends thrown in. That said I can't say I spotted any forgiveness in the collection.
A few of the stories have baseball as a back-drop and whilst I enjoyed this setting, some of the finer nuances and references eluded me.
A collection that was a bit different from my usual reading, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Most, if not all, of this collection is autobiographical to some extent. How do I know? I FEEL it! Father and son relationship is a common theme in several stories. The care for and bonding of an older brother with his younger brother; or a brother's closeness and deep love for a troubled sister, are other paths threading through the pages of Everhart's seminal work. A few times this former "badass" Marine found himself on the verge of tears. The characters are wonderfully flawed and fleshed-out. The dialogue is sparse and real. The stories are raw with feeling, raw and intense and gutsy.
I became a big Max Everhart fan when I found and devoured his excellent mystery series featuring private eye Eli Sharpe: GO GO GATO; SPLIT TO SPLINTERS (a SHAMUS Award finalist); and ED, NOT EDDIE; and then his rough and tumble crime/noir novel, ALPHABET LAND. ALL THE DIFFERENT WAYS . . . opens up a whole new facet of Everhart's talent as a writer to be reckoned with. I miss Eli Sharpe and hope to see him in future mysteries. But as long as Max Everhart keeps baring his soul through his words, I'll be waiting in anticipation for his next book.
Note: I received a copy of this book from the author for my fair and unbiased review.
