NEW YORK—May 26, 2020— Morgan James’ new release Snapshots, by Eliot Parker, is a collection of eleven short stories that depict life in small town Appalachia. Each story frames unique, riveting characters that are grappling with choices as they navigate their current circumstances. Personal and professional relationships of each character are weighed down by their backgrounds, life experiences, and the expectations of others. Each story deconstructs a character’s core values and beliefs, forcing them to reexamine who they are and who they need to become. 

The professional spaces explored in Snapshots stretch across the spectrum of social order: law enforcement personnel, successful couples, convicted criminals, the rich, and the grieving. As each protagonist faces their central conflict, they push the boundaries of their expectations, creating an unforgettable, reinvented group of people. These stories reveal instances of vulnerability amidst the truths of home, family, love, and acceptance within pivotal, ‘snapshot’ moments. 

In Snapshots, Eliot Parker topples expectations with his exciting and contemporary prose. Parker believes that life is defined by the choices one makes, not the circumstances they find themselves in. His writing captures how ordinary people can overcome extraordinary obstacles, altering their pattern of behavior. Snapshots reveals characters who uncover their pain, doubt, and disbelief before moving beyond it.
