Stairbirds In Love

357 pages5 hours


It is 1992, February of that year to be exact-- the month of brooms. An icy wind is scouring the sandhills of western Kansas, sweeping tumbleweeds and clouds of grit across the gray prairie. There is nothing on the monotonous horizon but same and old. This is the time of year that folks do crazy, desperate things and silent, steel-fisted stairbird Meggs Dupee has just done something crazy. He has taken a pregnant, twenty something waitress home to keep his house for him. Is it a ploy to dodge Migra or is it true love? Even Meggs is not sure.

Since Meggs gave up on housekeeping back in the late eighties his house is not fit for even the most determined housekeeper, Meggs' male cousins come to his rescue, cleaning his house and shopping for him. In the process, they begin a long, spirited debate on the mystery of love, never once realizing that they have stood up their wives on Valentine's Day.
