West U Author Debuts Novel, 11 STORIES
West U author and InstantNewsWestU.com contributor Chris Cander released her novel 11 Stories yesterday with stunning success. Within 18 hours of the announcement, the book was ranked #78 of all literary fiction eBooks.
11 Stories is the story of Roscoe Jones, a one-time trumpet prodigy turned superintendent of the eleven-story Chicago apartment building where he was raised. Although the tenants hardly notice him as anything but a working part of the building, he develops a sometimes uncomfortable intimacy with the details of their complicated lives and in some cases—one in particular—he forms relationships that drastically impact the course of his life. This is a story about sacrifice and service, longing and love-and the abiding hopefulness of the human heart that connects us all.
New York Times bestselling author David Eagleman calls it, “A narrative of suspended duration and unexpected detail, told from a bold new voice in American letters.”
