Follow the path of a twenty dollar bill as it is stolen, given, spent or otherwise passed from person to person, traveling from place to place. No bombastic explosions, steamy sex scenes, political intrigue or cosmic encounters. Just slices of life from the people you walk by every day – glimpses into how ordinary people interact, how they think, how they feel and how they love. A contemporary novel exploring every day interactions and relationships.
The Twenty Dollar Bill was an extraordinarily engrossing fast read. The novel is written in mini-vignettes each are a brief description of the individual who currently posses the twenty dollar bill. I started reading and I didn’t want to put the story down. Each mini-tale is unique and as interesting as the one before. I found myself reacting emotionally to the mini-stories from anger, sympathy and once (or twice), on the verge of tears.
