Abstract

This collection of five short stories explores the depths of human character and the contradictions in contemporary society. My characters traverse the present political and sociological environment, and often find themselves lost, hurt, and wounded. Yet, the depths of depravity which they at times attain serves to expose the deeper level of morality and spirituality that is found when superficiality is peeled back. Following Augustine, the most basic assumption in my thesis is that all iniquity reaches for some good. While my deeply flawed characters often fail, grace nonetheless works upon them. Hope lives.
