Out of the gate at full throttle! That best describes this first effort by Dan Chiras as a novelist. After some 30yrs of refinements, Here Stands Marshall, has finally hit the bookshelves and you should prepare yourself for quite a ride. With the reality of dysfunctional families, one night flings, and self-destruction, Chiras has broached a subject few like to talk about. Baggage. We all have it, but what to do when it's someone else's. Be you friend, family or lover, getting past it and instilling hope can be a sometimes endless pursuit. Thru hairpin turns and snowy passes with Marshall at the wheel, Chiras shows us one way, those carrying such a heavy load, can find their way to the top of the mountain.
