Relationship Briefs
by Robert Boni

The stories of relationships in this collection all have a common core of respect and empathy for the human condition and the connections people make or fail to make with each other. The author draws on his long and thoughtful observation of people to create characters and situations depicting a broad range of society, from a homeless musician, or the lonely wife of a foreign guest worker, to corporate executives and a Harley-riding tugboat skipper. Even the few “villains” in these stories, con artists and excessively greedy CEOs, are shown with sympathy for their human failings. The stories in Relationship Briefs will leave the reader with a renewed sense of optimism.


Robert Boni lives in Morristown, New Jersey with his wife, Janet, his beloved adviser of fifty-five years. They have two grown daughters, Susan and Leslie. Now retired as chief executive of three corporations and director of several companies, he holds lifetime memberships in The American Society of Metals and the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers. His special interests cover family, religion, business, music, golf, tennis, outdoors, public service and, of course, writing. His publications include Mind Coins, an eclectic assortment of prose and poetry and Juxtapositions, a three volume series of short poems. He also has completed three full-length novels that have not yet been published.
