In this remarkable story collection, As Breaks the Wave Upon the Sea, Robert Wallace leads us deftly, assuredly but with utmost sensitivity and understanding. His narrators, many of them female, very young to very old, show strength and self-awareness both believable and extraordinary. Wallace shows them precocious, insightful and yet human, with frailties and blind spots. These beautifully-drawn characters inform us, and leave us better, more sensitive and more understanding, than before we met them. ~Gregg Cusick, author of My Father Moves Through Time Like a Dirigible

Wally, a farmer with a keen eye for the stars, along with his practical wife Ada, literally and figuratively take a madcap journey South to visit their estranged daughter. Along the way, they pick up hitchhiker, Bright and his over-sized mother, Angelica. Told through the eyes of Ada, a devoted wife who must deal with Wally's Alzheimer's and weakening mind. This funny, yet poignant story keeps you guessing to the very end as Ada and Wally attend a funeral for a dwarf and meet the extra-tall curator of The Museum of Sandwiches.
