In the first book in this series, Mostly True: Short Stories*,* we traveled on the 'bumpy trek' of life. In this second book, entitled Mostly True II: Episodes the 'trek' continues with even more outlandish situations based on actual experiences, satirically presented with a twist of Magical Realism.
