About The Title

The title of the book comes from a remark my mother often made: “Unless you’re rich, life is nothing but trouble, so you damn well better get used to it.”

There are 34 stories and 43 photographic images.
The  stories are grouped under 7 sections:
  Fathers and Fools
  Women and Children
  Marriage and Divorce
  Love and Death
  The Wicked and The Virtuous
  Art and Artifice
  So Forth and So On

For the most part, these are small, fierce stories full of small cruelties,  sharp-tongued offhand remarks, and those careless, thoughtless actions that too often spin lives into new and sometimes odd directions; those moments when the joys and wonder in our lives,  all our blessings become overshadowed by a sense of sorrow, grief, confusion and a prickly feeling of regret; those moments when we ask ourselves: how did I end up in this mess, this situation, this condition, this moment, this peculiar state of being. But at that point, it’s too late. Trouble has found us.

Available at local bookstores and online booksellers.
