An associate of mine once told me that what comes out of the mouth is the excess in the heart. All too often it is the little things that reveal who we are. Most people miss those tidbits or dismiss them as trivial.

Paul Beckman is not one to miss the subtleties of behavior and words, not to mention the outlandish and fool-hearted games the ego plays.

Peek is a collection of 65 shorts illustrating the absurdity of life. I laughed, I was troubled, but mostly I kept reading. You move from one situation to another wondering where he will take you next. Although it is a work of fiction, I have known or know all of these people. Different names and places, but the same people, and as we all know truth is stranger than fiction.

If you want a fun read that will keep you wondering what’s next, then this book is for you.
