Fiction. In the twelve new stories of ALL I WANT IS WHAT YOU'VE GOT, award-winning author Glen Chamberlain deftly writes about the fragility of small town life. Chamberlain ushers us amongst half-broken lives, sharing moments of regret, yet allowing the redemptive qualities of her characters to ultimately shine through. From a night nurse confessing her forgotten desires to an invalid, to a Chinese girl trying to piece together a past from a single photograph; from an elderly rodeo cowboy falling in love with a beautiful stranger, to a woman acutely aware of the intricacies that lead to her own death, ALL I WANT IS WHAT YOU'VE GOT is a masterful book of stories revealing how the profoundest moments in life are the ones taken for granted.
