A stranger came to town /

By 1884-1973 Max Mack


This manuscript is a bound compilation of 4 short prose stories about rural life, often set in the past. The first tale recounts a young man's journey from his village home into the city of Jerusalem during the early Christian period, and then continues with his return from the city back to his village. Similarly, the story "Celestial happiness" touches briefly on biblical or mystical themes. The remaining two stories offer variations on a theme -- the arrival of a mysterious stranger disrupts the peaceful life of a village. The stories generally are light-hearted in tone, often a bit comic.Contents:Peter's kingdomFrom out of the storied pastCelestial happinessA stranger came to townBrief epilogueCharles EdwardsMax Mack was born in 1884 in Halberstadt.
