mr. dennis wants to know! Why do we cling so tightly? Why is our identity so bound up in our possessions? Are we throwing away our loved ones with their things?

Combining childlike wonder, adult cynicism, and Shakespearean gravitas in his impressively compelling story, master storyteller Dennis Elkins tackles these questions and more with heartwarming stories told by a man so naturally inclined to tell them that you’ll be on the edge of your seat captivated by tales of drowning in martini glasses and snack plates.
