The Way Things Were - Collected Stories

By J.R. Rogers

General fiction, Short stories | eBook

The collection presents a very different but yet richly depicted set of protagonists each with their own stories, stories often buttressed by an intriguing supporting cast. The writer’s arc is wide, including stories with historically accurate origins, stories of today with some set in France, Belgium, Mexico and Switzerlandand, right through to a story of old age set in a heartbraking imagined near future. In an unusual structure several of the stories are left unfinished. The plots hints at conclusions without delivering them and the reader is left to imagine his or her own endings.

The author is also a prolific short story writer he often writes alongside his current novel project. As a short story writer he credits the influence of masters the likes of Irwin Shaw, Raymond Carver, William Trevor, J.D. Salinger and Andre Dubus. A number of his stories have been published.
