Leo is a collection of short stories linked by the character, Leo. The stories follow Leo through different times, settings, and episodes in his life. In this collection, in the quest to understand the meaning of the self and individual, Leo attempts to learn the difference between good and bad and life and death. The stories feature odd family members, troubled relationships, and self-destructive coping mechanisms. Written in different narrative styles, the collection attempts to create a marriage between content and form with special attention to language. My stories hope to explore questions about cultural identity, emotional stability, and loss of innocence.
