A bull gets loose in Tennessee. A black sergeant stops the murder of a Trump supporter in North Carolina. The third husband of a nurse in Pawtucket wins the lottery. A schizophrenic woman who lives on Kennedy Plaza discovers that Social Security thinks she is dead. The 19-year-old Latina caretaker of a rich old man loses her mother to COVID-19. A horse that represents the hopes and dreams of a family in India falls asleep, and then awakens.



Ten stories. People whose lives are transformed. People who struggle and survive, who see their world through lost hopes, inappropriate loves, and irrational dreams. Ten stories, each one a new way to listen, see, feel and dream. 


Praise

"Dr. Fine is a major writer."
—Robert Whitcomb, president, The Boston Guardian, columnist for GoLocal24.com and former financial editor of the International Herald Tribune.



“Michael Fine’s world is not fair but it is full.  His characters are not beautiful but they have dignity. In this rich collection of stories we meet immigrants and youth, elderly and laborers - all grappling with life as it is; full of societal conflicts, pressing pain, small graces, fleeting wonder and occasional hope. To read about them is to read about us.”—Chris Koller, President The Milbank Memorial Fund



“The short story may be the most difficult of all fictional genres. In The Bull and Other Stories, Michael Fine, already a writer of great distinction, demonstrates he is a master. From first sentence to last, this collection is a rare delight.” —G Wayne Miller, Author and Providence Journal reporter



"The Bull and other stories, Rhythmic with a jazz cadence, poignant ,timely and timeless, vivid detail but above all Michael Fine is a storyteller and a damn good one at that."—Bert Crenca, Artist, Founder of AS220



“Michael Fine’s short stories rivet our readers in his monthly Sunday morning columns. We can imagine them sitting there with their morning coffee pondering the obvious and the not so obvious life dramas that Michael writes that capture you from the beginning, to the very end.”—Nancy Thomas, President of Tapestry Communications; Co-Founder and EditorRINewsToday.com
