Allegiance and betrayal : stories by Peter Makuck( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Makuck returns to one of the most fertile wellsprings of literature--the family. With grace and wit, he dramatizes family matters in post-World War II America, drawing attention to why families matter and what is the matter with so many of them... As he points to the tragic and comic ways family members exacerbate and resolve their differences, he repeatedly surprises us with the mysterious ways people act."--From Amazon.com
