Peterborough - Former Keene resident Tim Weed discusses his new book of short stories

TIM WEED signing and discussing A FIELD GUIDE TO MURDER & FLYFISHING: STORIES 

Tim Weed spent much of his youth in southern New Hampshire and attended Keene High School before graduating from Middlebury College. Many of the stories in A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing are informed by those early years, with several set all or partly in the area. “Tower Eight” unfolds across a series of southern New Hampshire settings—at a granite quarry, a former mill town, and a ski resort—as teenage misfits put themselves into various dangerous situations, establishing a tight friendship as they hurtle toward a tragic end. In “Steal Your Face,” a young man from Keene loses the love of his life and is captivated by dangerously alluring visions. In “A Winter Break in Rome,” a naïve New Hampshire college student infatuated with a beautiful girl is surprised by violence in an ancient European city, and in “The Dragon of Conchagua,” a troubled former Peace Corps volunteer returns to Ecuador to climb a high-altitude volcano, where he is haunted by increasingly vivid memories of the happy New Hampshire childhood he shared with his departed brother.
