It’s a collection of connected short stories with the feel of a novel, the stories taking place in the fictional town of Striven, Alabama. Most of the stories center about Sam Witherspoon, the owner of a rural pool hall and bar, hence the joint’s name. Sam’s patrons are colorful, charming, and can be a bit dangerous at times, and Sam seems always to be on the outs with Striven’s bluenoses.
Amazon’s description: “Step inside Sam’s and you can play a game of eight ball, nurse a beer, or get to know a wayward preacher, a reformed hooker, an Iraq vet amputee – or Sam himself. You may watch a baby being born, see a deadly knife fight, or simply hear tall tales. But there’s always a rough-hewn truth within the lies, and Sam’s there to manage everything from birth to death with a righteous cant. All things considered, it isn’t a bad world. Sam’s Place is a collection of interwoven short stories that revolve around a local watering hole in the Alabama town of Striven. Pull up a chair and get to know the locals in this powerful and entertaining world that is Sam’s Place.”
