Coal Shed Publishing has announced the launch of “The Streets Of Greenfield,” a book by Eric Grate.
“The Streets Of Greenfield” is a collection of 18 short stories set in the small Appalachian town of Greenfield between 1946 and 2023. The stories depict tough times as seen through the eyes of tough people living in a tough town.
Eric’s stories cut against the grain in an edgy, often humorous style that he calls “hardscrabble.” Experience life on Greenfield’s tough streets where losers sometimes win, winners often lose, and anti-heroes carry the day.
“The Streets Of Greenfield” became available on Nov. 21, and may be purchased through Amazon as well as on Grate’s homepage at www.ericgrate.com, and at select locations in Ohio and Kentucky.
