Abbe Rolnick—teller of tales, celebrant of life, world traveler—offers visions from the heart in this collection of short stories and essays. Explorations of whimsy and wisdom take the reader from the basement of a young girl learning about the Holocaust via a repairman, to a literal and psychological deep dive in the Caribbean, to the humble truths of a dung beetle in Africa, and all points in between. The author’s keen perception and compassion light the way. Truth has many layers, viewpoints give a perspective, slices create a feel, and by putting them together the reader sees more of the author, more of themselves, and can enter other worlds.
In Tattle Tales, Abbe Rolnick’s joie de vivre is evident. These stories and essays take you to an inner realm where Abbe, the observer, contemplates an ever-changing landscape called life. Her enthusiasm and passion thread through each thoughtful piece. Enjoy Tattle Tales. – Mary Elizabeth Gillian, editor, Clover, A Literary Rag
