Mr. Tomlinson is on his usual writing and publishing tear. This month, he published his short story, “B.A.R.” in the Blue Lyra Review. The story represents a Foote family Christmas story of sorts. The Footes are the family of Clifford Foote, whose coming of age Tim has serialized in linked short stories. In “B.A.R.,” as in the entire series, Tim displays an uncanny ability to capture the structure of feeling of 1960s working-class urban America, as one becomes intimately acquainted with this teenager and his family.
