"Lost Reflection" by Dennis Callaci

  • "Lost Reflection" by Dennis Callaci

In Dennis Callaci’s third book, Lost Reflection, the author has assembled seven short stories that are sewn together with characters whose reflections on the past are not to be trusted. Tug at the seams of the book to find the connective tissue—a clone of a character in one story appearing with an assumed name in the next, a reinterpretation of previous events here and again there. Or pay no mind to the lost echo searching eternally.

Some of my first short stories were extensions of lyrics or poems. They were stanzas that I put into paragraph form and fleshed out from there. I could see that lyrics and poems were getting restrictive in what I could do on paper.
