Stephen Jerome Kohn

Fiction writer Stephen Jerome Kohn explores the lives of everyday people, using his keen eye to survey the human spirit and delicately craft his observations into short stories about the heart.

Kohn, author of Hearts: Breaking/Mending: Short Stories Relationships: Beginnings and Endings, returns with Saints and Sinners. His second collection of short stories focuses on human interactions. There are saints and sinners among us, people whose degree of empathy towers above the rest and others whose apathy reigns supreme. Some deal with tragedies, and others merely celebrate the joy of life or lament its sorrows.

In one story, a couple celebrating their sixtieth anniversary discloses the secret of how they renew their affection for each other every morning. In another, a story about forgiveness, a man who's fired from the bank turns the other cheek when the ringleader of the scheme to oust him accidentally sends him a note.

Morality tales of our times, each of Kohn's nineteen stories serves as a lesson about life, and leads readers to contemplate their attitudes toward others, leaving us with a greater understanding about how our lives can impact others.
