Those Like Us presents characters struggling against the weight of memory. The collection opens with the story of a teenager who connects with his dying father through the football rivalry that has always divided their family. In "Dunn's River Falls," a young veteran is thrust back into a world of chaos when his wife suffers a terrible accident on their honeymoon. "Variations on a Line from Joe Namath" centers on a high school football coach trying to carve out an identity for himself as he struggles with the legacy of his father and his own past as an athlete. Coaches and linemen, bartenders and drunks, tour guides and EMTs, the characters in these stories are obsessed and adrift.
