Ruby Mae Has Something to Say
At home in Nada, Texas, a small town on a featureless plane, Ruby Mae has established the World Headquarters for Universal Peace and Understanding. She would like to carry her message to the United Nations. But unintended insults and absurdities tumble out of her mouth as she is written off as a “goofball.”
“David Small tackles the universals—greed, evil folly, peace and understanding— in a clear eyed, puckish celebration of personal integrity, eccentricity, even barminess… playfully wise, his stories should stimulate lively discussion between parents and children.”
