A Rising Tide Of People Swept Away
by Scott Archer Jones
A small boy flees a toxic family, all the way across the alley to Rip's Bar & Package Liquor Store and a vivid troupe of broken people in the Albuquerque Bosque. The boy gladly trades family for a hodgepodge of drinkers and losers. They collect misery like small change and rally to keep their neighborhood alive. Will the working poor beat City Hall and keep the kid out of the system?
