Review of Found Money by Peter Watson Jenkins

5StarsI found a treasure!

I’ve just finished Peter Watson Jenkins’ Found Money; Eighteen Short Stories by a Master Wordsmith and the first words that come to mind are ‘excellent’ and ‘entertaining’.

JenkinsPeterWatson-CoverWriting is difficult work under any circumstance, but to weave a short tale takes a true master. Jenkins is one of those masters. All but one of these short stories has the theme of money. You’d expect that finding so many stories with the same motif would be tiresome. Not so. The tightly woven fabric of each story displays a unique pattern, setting it apart from all the others. I especially like that the stories cross all boundaries, settings, and historical periods. There’s something here for everyone!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Found Money and give it my highest recommendation. You’ll find happiness and sorrow, laughs and tears. Most of all, you’ll be swept away!

About Ol' Big Jim

Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama. For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.
