Abstract (Summary)
MILFORD, DELAWARE, OF ALL PLACES: TEN STORIES BY GREGORY S. LAYTON by Gregory Scott Layton This collection of short stories demonstrates a range of structures, voices and points of view, all used to explore themes of place and community. These stories portray characters attempting to integrate themselves into social structures that resist them, extricate themselves from social structures that repress them, retain social structures that support them, or simply comprehend social structures that baffle them. Some stories are intended to evoke readers’ sympathy by allowing them to share character’s perceptions. Other stories use a range of narrative distances to provide an ironic view. In short, these stories offer a range of views on social dynamics. They mark the writer’s developing grasp of the short story form and desire to experiment.
