Overview

A History of the Beanbag and Other Stories is a short story collection with a difference - a scenic tour of the surprises, secrets, and fears lurking beneath the cracked veneer of domesticity and suburban complacency. With photographic precision, author Susan Midalia captures the fleeting beauty, light, and darkness that is to be found in the ephemera of everyday life. Like the beanbag in the title, the stories are an invitation to settle yourself in for a reading experience by turns vivid, haunting, bizarre, and strangely comforting.
