I Am Miami (Storycuts)

Summary

In the tropics of Miami, retired Scottish schoolteacher Albert Black mourns his wife of forty-one years. His grief and inability to connect with his son's Americanised family combine to undermine the Christian ethos that has governed his life. Dejected, he summons a final rallying of his principles and seeks out a confrontation with a former pupil.

Part of the Storycuts series, this story was previously published in the collection Reheated Cabbage.
