Abstract

This thesis is comprised of a collection of short fiction depicting the childhoods and family lives of characters living in small northeastern towns. These seven stories explore the impact that the adult world has on the children who observe and seek to understand it, as well as how the events of childhood and the past can permeate and shape the lives of teenagers and adults trying to make important human connections in their present lives.
