PRUNING THE FAMILY TREE (Twelve short stories and a bunch of jokes)
A funny, nostalgic, and poignant collection of twelve short stories, delightfully mixing fact and fiction, with inspiration from the youth of Robert Cooper. They were written for the literary journals of the University of St. Thomas and read by the author on Houston college, café and nightclub stages, and on radio and television. “A Bunch of Jokes” is a collection of his stand-up comedy material added to this book so that, if you ever happen to see him perform them live and you do not laugh, he can believe that you already read the jokes alone and laughed enough then. In this way, he can continue to feel good about himself. The book concludes with “Not Afraid,” a short comic play.
