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’.
Writing 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!
You can find Found Money; Eighteen Short Stories at these fine booksellers:
