Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
From the introduction: "A Jam Session consists of nonfiction pieces and short stories set in Chicago and completed within the last six years. May of the entries involve sports. That reflects my belief that one can learn insights about themselves and others through the heat of competition. I hope that these works will provide some inspiration, perspective, or perhaps a chuckle."
