For more than a decade, Linc Menner has raised the status of househusband to an art form. . . . While his wife, Jo, brings home the bacon, Linc Menner holds down the fort–his gourmet cooking is sublime, his cleaning unrivaled, and his devotion to his daughter, Violet, unparalleled. But when the Menners relocate from upstate New York to the steamy beaches of Naples, Florida, life takes an unexpected turn. As the Menners renovate their new home Linc’s bliss turns into a war zone of contractors, dry wall dust, and chaos. And suddenly being surrounded by guys whose faces go blank as he expounds on the virtues of lump-free gravy makes Linc realize he has forgotten what it feels like to be a man. So Linc trades his flip-flops for work boots, and his wild mop of hair for a barbershop buzz, and marches his flabby physique to the nearest gym–attracting the secret devotion of one of Violet’s teacher in the process. And his stunned family watches helplessly as they lose the man who keeps them all together. To make matters worse, it’s hurricane season and there’s a category 5 heading right for Naples. As life on the home front explodes into hilarity and catastrophe, Linc must chart his own delightfully crooked course to finally become the Man of the House. Praise for Ad Hudler’s Househusband “With self-deprecating humor and adroit expression, Hudler delves deep into the American psyche of gender roles. . . . The dialogue rings with authenticity.” –The State (Columbia, S.C.) “Winning . . . [a] breezy comic outing.” –The New York Times From the Trade Paperback edition.

Stephen McCauley's much-loved novels The Object of My Affection and The Easy Way Out prompted The New York Times Book Review to dub him "the secret love child of Edith Wharton and Woody Allen." Now McCauley stakes further claim to that title -- and more -- with a rich and deftly funny novel that charts the unpredictable terrain of family, friends, and fathers. Thirty-five-year-old Clyde Carmichael spends too much time at things that make him miserable: teaching at a posh but flaky adult learning center; devouring forgettable celebrity biographies; and obsessing about his ex-lover, Gordon. Clyde's other chief pursuit is dodging his family -- his maddeningly insecure sister and his irascible father, who may or may not be at death's door. Clyde's in danger of becoming as aimless as Marcus, his handsome (and unswervingly straight) roommate, who's spent ten years on one dissertation and far too many fizzled relationships. Enter Louise Morris. Clyde's old friend and Marcus's onetime lover is a restless writer and single mother, who shows up with Ben, her son and a neurotic dog in tow. The looming question of Ben's paternity nudges Clyde back into the orbit of his own father -- and propels our endearing hero into the kind of bittersweet emotional terrain that McCauley captures so well.

The war may be over, but for one young wife, her battles are only just beginning... Man of the House is a heart-breaking but ultimately uplifting saga of life after the war, in the second instalment of Joan Jonker's Eileen Gillmoss series. Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Katie Flynn. On VE day, everyone was rejoicing and it seemed the whole population of Liverpool had turned out to celebrate. Eileen Gillmoss, a colourful character with a smile forever lighting up her face, was the life and soul of the party. Today was the day she'd prayed for and dreamed about. After five long, lonely years, her prisoner-of-war husband Bill would be coming home, back to the open, loving arms of his wife and children. But the man who comes back from the war is a complete stranger to her. It isn't only that Bill's appearance has changed. It's his remoteness, his flinching from her touch that Eileen can't cope with. Now, Eileen, who is always there to lend a shoulder to cry on, is the one in need. But who can she turn to? No one can give her what she craves most... her old husband back. She wants him back where he belongs, as the man of the house. What readers are saying about Man of the House: 'This book has everything you need for a good read. I couldn't put it down. With every page you turn you don't know whether you'll be laughing or crying by the end of the page. With the good description of the characters in the book you feel like you have known them all your life' 'Excellent... Joan Jonker never lets you down'

After his mother goes deaf, a young boy must navigate through the many difficulties of his childhood. The boy witnesses his Mom deal with loss, his father becoming distant, his older brother living a life of his own. The protagonist feels alone, powerless, voiceless. At the same time, the boy tries to impress the girl of his dreams at school, leading him into a troublesome situation. He must make choices which could affect him for the rest of his life. Through it all, he must figure out how to endure and grow, how to become the man of the house. • See how the protagonist deals with the struggling relationship between his mother and father. • How to deal with the struggles of puberty and coming of age. • Impressing your crush at school and the holes this can trap you in. • Navigating through a house filled with tension while also trying to take control. • Understand what it’s like to live with someone who has experienced recent trauma. • Read about the importance of a mother-son relationship and how the bond between parent and child can grow. The story is fictional, but tells true experiences of the author. It is a personal story that speaks to what growing up is really like for many young boys, and how they look to their parents or siblings for guidance. This story tells what can go wrong when that guidance is not there, but also the powerful bond between mother and son. About the Writer Alex Eaker grew up in the cold suburbs of Connecticut. At five years old, his parents got a divorce, putting Alex on an early path towards writing. Ever since, Alex has written about his experience as a son and younger brother, operating between his mother and fathers’ homes while also enduring the universal struggles of adolescence. His stories serve to share his experience, an experience not uncommon in today’s world. He hopes his words can reach the ears of readers who are seeking a voice to connect with, a voice they feel they have a common thread between. Short Story Press publishes short stories written by everyday writers.

One of the author’s previous works, entitled "A (Hi)story of Language and Being in the Bible," explored the relationship between man and language from the point of view of the biblical narrative, using linguistics and philosophy to analyze the way the ancient text describes the birth, the evolution, and the end of language. This analysis was used to produce a “meta-narrative,” that is, a narrative that recounts the story of the metaphysical world opened up by language, following the metaphor crafted by Martin Heidegger that describes language as the “House of Being.” In this previous work, the outline of this meta-narrative was presented in technical language, with its metaphorical elements intertwined with the language of philosophy, linguistics, and exegesis. The power of metaphors nonetheless lies in the fact that they appeal to the senses as much as to the mind. In the same manner, the meta-narrative can only shine when it is told in a language that is as close to the senses as possible: poetic language. The present work represents such a retelling of the story of language and being in the bible, as a prose story devoid of any technical language so that man can see himself as one of the dwellers of the House of Being that it depicts, and change his own relationship with language. This story begins with the building of the House of Being by the first man. It then shows how the house evolves, both shaped by man and shaping him: how it is split into numerous houses as a result of man’s arrogance; how new building techniques will radically change the houses’ structure, and how man will dis-cover the village formed by all the houses of being. Ultimately, he will travel and make these houses new homes, and the village will slowly be transformed into a city, before the end comes, and the purpose of language in man’s destiny is revealed.
