Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Islands, and Other Stories
by Wilson, Jeffery, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2020, 119; 27835321
Abstract (Summary)

Islands and Other Stories is a collection that focuses on young and older characters. The first four stories, which are interrelated, revolve around the protagonist, Tyler, and his struggles as an adult. In the other four stories, each character undergoes some inner turmoil as they try to rebuild their lives. The stories explore some themes such as friendship, anxiety, family, and death. My writing tends to show doubt and honesty, but ultimately, I write to connect with others. This collection represents my effort to create stories and characters.
