Search Party by Valerie Trueblood

The beginning of this story collection starts with a quote by Penelope Fitzgerald: "If a story begins with finding, it must end with searching," and so we discover each story here to follow the arc of a search, just as each also contains a rescue. These stories surprise and stun though as it is not always clear who is the lost. Whether it be the story of a police officer who has been fired and suddenly finds himself in a position to confront a violent student, to that of a teenage nurse-aide who has just entered the folds of the adult world and is challenged by the ways heartlessness seems to be the accepted norm, Trueblood’s talent is conveyed in the demands she places on the reader—it is often up to us to discover the empathy and the understanding—to find the resolve and sympathy for those that are lost and just outside of reach.
