Stories from the Cold Room by Jeffrey Greene

$13.95

 

The seven stories in this debut collection by Jeffrey Greene are all set in central Florida. This is not the Florida of beach vacations and theme parks, but the rural and small-town interior of a state as Southern in its own way as Georgia or Alabama. In "Big Scrub", the dissolute scion of a wealthy Palm Beach family confronts his past at a lonely hunting cabin in the Ocala National Forest. "The Tree Surgeon" lays bare a few hours in the life of a man who yileds to a fatal impulse on the eve of his wife's birthday. His academic career destroyed by a cruel hoax, a professor of African-American Studies sets out to discover who has done this to him, and why, in "The Cold Room". These and other stories offer glimpses of a Florida that few visitors see, as they speed down I-95 toward sunnier destinations.

 

Jeffrey Greene was born in Dowagiac, Michigan and grew up in Bartow, Florida. He has lived in Lakeland, Tampa, Gainseville, a cabin on the Suwannee River, and Washington, D.C. He presently lives in Bethesda, Maryland.
