ALL MEN ARE BROTHERS &
THE TIE GOES TO THE RUNNER
All Men Are Brothers is Jude Joseph Lovell's fourth collection of short fiction, and his most diverse yet. Readers will find themselves in a variety of unpredictable settings, looking at the world through the eyes of numerous arresting characters.
They may be in small town, Indiana, in the early sixties, witnessing the final hours of an unsung life - and an inexplicable crime. They may be a single mother of two who unexpectedly spends 24 hours in the body of one of rock n' roll's most notorious hellraisers. They might be alone on a vast hillside, suddenly bearing witness to the celestial wonders surrounding the birth of Christ. They could be an assassin, undertaking one final hit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, just in time for everything to go to hell. Or, if they're brave enough, they may accompany a squad of young men in Normandy, France, on a dangerous mission to rescue a Polish deserter forced to take up arms for the Nazis.
These adventures, and others, await you inside the pages of this startling collection of eight new tales from an unchained, unafraid storyteller.
A few months into the global pandemic that embroiled the entire planet in a fearful nightmare, writer Jude Joseph Lovell found himself counting his blessings, but also in the middle of his first bout with clinical depression. Struggling, he stumbled one night onto a broadcast of a Korean baseball contest taking place halfway around the world. And something happened.
In THE TIE GOES TO THE RUNNER, Lovell explores his re-engagement with a game that once brought him endless joy as a child. Through memory, observation, and imagination, he examines with new eyes the sport that means so much to so many. And, in his inimitable voice, he illuminates how our national pastime helped him to reconnect with the game we call life.
