From a former child star trying her best to raise a son with her TV mom as her only example, to an innocuous boy who points out Orion's Belt in the pockmarks on a girl’s upper thighs, and calls them stars, in awe, Cheers, Somebody travels as a houseguest to relationships in flux. The twenty stories in this collection examine how Middle Americans navigate interpersonal connections to learn more about others as well as the self. These interactions usher in deeper insight and reevaluate the meaning of community.
