Butterflies Behind Glass & Other Stories


Kyle Labe’s short story collection, published through Emerson College’s Wilde Press, examines the truths of growing up for each of the distinct characters in the six different stories within: the truths of family, of God, of sex, of self.  In the title story, a pilot’s crash in the backyard of a Midwestern family disrupts the household dynamic, while in the final story, a mysterious man washes ashore, convincing the narrator he’s a reincarnate of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t pretend that life is beautiful at times when it’s not, but it does explore what brings forth happiness, kindness, and love.

Proceeds of the book were donated to both Planned Parenthood and Rosie’s Place, a women’s shelter in Boston.
