His stories offer new, uncommon perspectives on life—ones that both examine and challenge everyday thoughts and what it means to be human.

This roundup begins and ends with stories about food. We didn't plan it. It just happened that way. It's fitting though, isn't it? Humanity begins at home, and often enough, it begins around the table. For many, the best memories start with the smell of food wafting from the kitchen.
