The Wildflowers of Baltimore is a collection of stories about young men on high-stakes searches for love, truth and understanding.
In many cases, the searching young men discover that the answers they come to are both more challenging and less comforting than what they thought they were going to find. In "Stillborn Giraffe," an unreflective college student finds himself suddenly faced with the essential truth of life and death in the form of a giraffe struggling to give birth. In "Hush," a girl goes missing, and a new father is cajoled by an old friend with a checkered past into joining the search party. What the search party finds is not what they expect.
As these characters search the world, they must also search themselves. The stories in The Wildflowers of Baltimore are about characters seeking answers to life's biggest questions, whether they know it or not: What does it mean to be a man? A father? What does it mean to love? to be alive? How should one live?
