Hard living, missed opportunities, and dogged persistence in the pursuit of impossible dreams are themes that help unite the linked stories in Jim Sanderson's fine new story cycle Faded Love. The characters Sanderson weaves in and out of these sometimes side-splitting, sometimes gut-wrenching stories are people whose poignantly-rendered lives resonate long after the last page has been turned. Faded Love was a finalist for the Texas Institute of Letter's 2010 Jesse Jones award, given to the best book about Texas or about a Texan. The Texas Institute of Letters, established in 1936, is the most prestigious literary organization in Texas.
