Steal Me For Your Stories, the debut collection from New York author Robb Todd, pulls the reader in opposite directions, mixing the tender and vulnerable with the raw and sometimes raunchy, a hard and soft clip to the ears. It’s a journey you want to go on, even though you are not sure what to pack, the weather being completely unpredictable.
Todd’s stories, often set against harsh city backdrops heavy with trash and pigeons, are entwined with raw emotion and texture. Steal Me For Your Stories discovers the extraordinary within the ordinary, and Todd’s prose reminds us there is poetry in all things.
Steal Me For Your Stories is now available.
