Sinossi

A Smile Through a Tear is a collection of short stories featuring humorous and dramatic pieces in one volume. Five of these stories have been previously selected for publication in literary journals, including Berkeley Fiction Review.

The humorous stories include the tales of: a telephone company executive who must figure out how to use his phone before he is exposed as a fraud; a woman who has accidentally introduced a mysterious white powder into the State Capitol building; and a man whose entire job is to sit on a park bench, and who has trouble meeting that obligation.

The dramatic episodes include the stories of: a father trying to protect his kids from a lifestyle that sent him to prison; a group of WWI soldiers facing overwhelming odds; a space traveler who must make a terrible choice; and a man whose best Christmas would be anyone else's worst.

These tales and many others are brought together in one book to present the reader with A Smile Through a Tear.
The total length of A Smile Through a Tear is 82,000 words.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful collection of short stories - A MUST READ 6 aprile 2012
Di Sandy L. Wolters - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

If you are like me and love to read but you are so busy it's daunting trying to find the time to read a full-length novel, A SMILE THROUGH A TEAR: STORIES by SCOTT NAGELE is the book for you. The very best comparison I have to reading one of Mr. Nagele's short stories instead of a full-length novel is, it is like eating a bite-sized Milky Way instead of the full-sized candy bar. You get all of the pleasure and none of the guilt.

Each story in this collection of short stories is masterfully written and leaves the reader with a sense of fulfillment after reading them. Mr. Nagele has given the reader variety in not only humor to drama, but writing styles, and time frames from historical to futuristic. I LOVED THEM ALL!

I highly recommend this book for anyone that enjoys reading any genre. There's something here for everyone.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Book worth Keeping...and Sharing 4 luglio 2011
Di claude williams - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I just finished reading A Smile Through a Tear: Stories this morning about 2:00 a.m. I purposely took my time, reading one or maybe two stories a night, so as to savor them and not let them run together. As much as I like Kindle and read this on Kindle, I don't think it does the book justice. I am going to purchase the Paperback version to keep and re-read time and time again. This book made me happy...then made me sad...and also made me wonder what would have happened if some of the main characters had chosen a different path.

My two favorite stories were " We'll Always Have Drivers Ed " where the adult version of the main character thinks about the possibilities, had he broke down and asked the tall blond girl out....I believe the author says to us, go ahead, take a chance...don't go through life wondering what may have been..........and

"Mr. Humbolm's Merriest Christmas "......where Mr. Humbolm has happy dreams about the kind of life he wished he had. What we learned is that there are many people who are hurting, not only at Christmas, but all during the year, and challenges us to reach out to those who may not have anyone to care about them.

I happily rate this book of short stories 5 stars from this satisfied reader.
