Who are you if you have no place to call your own? The first two pieces, Poor Tree and the title story, look at characters who wrestle with who they are and what they want without home or family to consider.

The third, Padre, examines the other side of the equation--the lives and faith of those who sacrifice their sanity and well-being on a mission to help out homeless, traumatized teenagers.See why Padgett Powell says, “Richard Weems is a big, generous, weird guy whose stories too are generous and weird.”Stories for a song!

(Literally!)Richard K. Weems (www.weemsnet.net) is also the author of Anything He Wants, winner of the Spire Fiction Award and finalist for the Eric Hoffer Book Prize. He lives and teaches in New Jersey.Richard Weems surging dialogue and rhapsodic narrative guide us through the humorous, albeit damning, interactions of people who are just like us. Confused, inspired, and sad, his characters are working to change their lives but are frustrated by both the every-day and the highly unusual. Detailed introspections are delivered through original prose, unlike anything Ive ever read.

Dont read him if you want the norm. His voice is part of an underground, cutting edge group of writers who are making wild changes to the way literature is created and enjoyed.-Camille Renshaw, former Editor of Pif MagazineA pleasure to read, a pleasure to inhabit...Extraordinary work by a writer about whom too little is known.-Frederick BarthelmeRichard Weems is a big, generous, weird guy whose stories too are generous and weird.

Weems is going to get weirder with time, and more generous and more large, and he will be fun to read.-Padgett Powell
