Life Is A Peach


By Francis Eugene Wood
Paperback, 68 pages
ISBN: 979-8-6812-9414-6

In this collection of short stories, destined to be known as Francis Wood’s “Peach Book,” the author has shared more than a dozen reminiscences of his life in rural Virginia. The fact that peaches play such an integral part in his life experiences is certainly a testament to the author’s uninhibited passion for the fruit. The juxtaposition of the peach is the inspiration for stories that will tug at your heartstrings and, also, tickle your imaginations and is a view into the skillfulness of Wood as a storyteller. Life Is A Peach (When It’s Not The Pits) is a clever offering. And, really quite keen!
