From the Author
Welcome to Cottonwood, Georgia. The four stories in “Kiss Shot” are a taste of a much larger work to come exploring the lives of the inhabitants of this small southern town. The stories were written over a period of almost 20 years and owe much to the tradition of great storytellers like Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty, Ferrol Sams and Fannie Flagg. Enjoy your stay!
Award-winning author Collin Kelley (“Conquering Venus” and “Remain In Light”) explores his Southern roots with this collection of four short stories set in the town of Cottonwood, Georgia. In “How Fanny Got Her House,” a devoted maid recalls the hijinks surrounding her employer’s death from a brain tumor, while a teenage boy comes to terms with his sexuality during an unexpected game of pool in the title story, “Kiss Shot.” A woman escaping an abusive relationship arrives in New Orleans during a rain storm and wanders into the famed “Clover Grill” on Bourbon Street, and “I Got A Name” follows the trials and tribulations of an overweight woman looking for love at a community theater company.
