Musings of a Maine Man Abroad, Prose, Poems, Plays, and a spattering of Personal Philosophy is a collection of short stories, plays, poems and essays written by Robert James Shand.
These tales are funny, horrible, and uplifting in turns. Author Robert James Shand provides a full disclosure of his personal life, from his experiences growing up in Brewer, Maine, to his thoughts and feelings while living abroad.
Through his stories, Shand describes his appreciation of the seasons on Maine, reflects on trying to celebrate Veterans Day in Mexico, and laughs at the time he saw a naked woman running down the street.
On a more serious note, Shand recalls his experiences serving in Viet Nam through fictionalized accounts of the trauma every veteran shares.
Throughout Musings of a Maine Man Abroad, Shand maintains his core beliefs about the world and his place in it.
