Abstract

If There’s Anything I Can Do is a collection of nine connected short stories. Each story takes place in the fictional River City, and explores the lives of characters that frequent Cellar Door, a divey, basement bar in the heart of downtown. Bartenders, musicians, regulars, neighbors, fathers, brothers, and lovers make up the crowd at Cellar Door, and each story shows the importance of place within a community.
