Most of the stories in One is a Lonely Number take place in a 3,000 person urban high school in the late 1960’s. I captured what it was like to live then, when our lives were transformed through relationships.
- In The Odd One a not-so-popular girl and the star pitcher on the school’s team figure out what counts more than anything else.
- In spite, or because of, Freedom Marches in the south, in Ice on the Moon a black and a white student learn some hard lessons.
- In Sar an old man and a girl help a boy recognize the difference between what’s real and illusion, and change his life.
- In Ah! Mio Core a mother who doesn’t want a daughter that sings like a frog sends her to an old woman to find her voice.
