Crossing Lake Pontchartrain

Arthur Byrd

“You unlost yet?” A New Orleans clairvoyant asks a Mississippi man as a new friendship explores old uncertainties about his missing father. Yearning to shake off his stalled life of divorce and a tossed writing dream, Larry is tired of squandering life’s potential. But a yoga instructor, an iron sculptor, and a philosophical maintenance worker inspire him with a potent mix of shared creativity and human affection. Learning to Chop Wood Carry Water may give Larry a second chance to discover what gives a life true meaning.
