11 stories. A rogues gallery of broken men. How much of themselves will they give up to get what they want? How many loved ones will they leave behind?


Matthew Silver is an alcoholic, a self-proclaimed nymphomaniac, and the unofficial keeper of his family’s long and sordid history. Disowned by his homophobic father in the wake of a disastrous coming out, Matt was taken under the wing of his far more open-minded grandfather. But when Grampy dies and leaves Matt alone under the roof of their family’s ancestral home on Cape Cod, Matt becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth of how the Silvers came to be so broken.


Collecting stories of his family and the people who loved them, Matt weaves together a tapestry ornamented by heroes who range from the loathsome to the lustful, the lascivious to the mischievous. But when years of research get him no closer to elusive truth he’s been after, how far will he go to unburden himself of the pain generations of Silver men have heaped upon his shoulders.


All He Left Behind is the second short story collection by the author E. Christopher Clark. If you like unflinching portrayals of morally ambiguous characters, then you’ll love the short fictions of this fearless and defiant young writer.
