The Little Black Book
(and Other Stories)

by R. J. Stanchfield

An eclectic collection of stories that are autobiographical in nature. What I tell you may be relevant to what happened. It’s more likely to be a series of exaggerations. That doesn’t stop me from telling the story as if it is perfectly true. I’m from Queens. It is what we do on the stoop; we tell stories. I'm a storyteller.

“Maybe that is the undying hope I have: that the world will change, that people will understand that as they have had the hubris to steal and mishandle the earth and its peoples for selfish pride, that they have also shown great compassion. My hope is that compassion will rule, and Mother Nature will hear the tones of passion and allow the people to repair their misdeeds.”
