The Game of Life : "A Collection of Snapshots from the Family Album of Two Experienced Players"
A collection of short stories, poems, and postcards that range from the amusingly playful to the provocatively thoughtful. The underlying theme is triumph through focused effort and mutual support over the life crises that all of us must face The stories are presented in a bite-sized format and are designed to appeal to the palates of mature adults who have had some difficult life experiences of their own. The book is divided into several segments. It begins with Reflections, a short collection of personal reveries and inspirational tracts, that establishes the theme for what follows. A Cats' Tale is a series of stories about the adventures and idiosyncracies of the family pets that begins with the story of Sparky, The Christmas Cat. Next comes Snippets which chronicles the greater and lesser adventures of a couple who found each other after stumbling, unsuccessfully, through their first marriages and who strive through their own trial and error experiments to create a happy life together. Relationship Survival Kit, that follows, is a humorously presented set of "do's" and "don'ts" for couples in committed relationships. Finally, Myths That Maim cautions us about the hidden pitfalls of a mindless, bumper sticker-approach to life.
