Sweet Cheeks and More Stories from the Nickel City is a poignant and vibrant collection of short fiction from author Michael Burns Haggerty whose characters have deep roots in Buffalo and Western New York. In Sweet Cheeks, a down and out carpet cleaner masters the art of blackjack so he can earn enough money to move himself and his prostitute girlfriend to Costa Rica. In Coming  
Home, a young man returns home to learn the mysteries of his mother’s suicide, and in Pedro on the Street Corner, a young thief tries to break free from a life of crime. These comically dark and  
frighteningly real stories give the reader an uncompromising understanding of the hard-hitting, determined, and flawed characters that live and die in Buffalo and Western New York.
