There I go The Indie's Nest

Award-winning author Bill VanPatten takes the reader on a journey in and around the Central Valley of California. From the titular story, “There Go I”—in which a man studies a woman and ponders what made her the bitter soul she is—to “Buzz”—about a young girl in 1951 who dreams of being another Amelia Earhart—VanPatten deftly weaves past with present as characters’ lives are laid bare on the page. These stories are small-town California like most readers have never imagined.
