This dilemma occupies Meredith's fiction. With a style pitched to the nuances of character and setting, the stories in Wing Walking move from California's posh suburbs through the small towns of rural America to the coast of Turkey and the Tuscan hills. The characters are as diverse as the settings: from little Zatha Monroe struggling to play Mozart's D Minor Concerto on a garden hose to the shenanigans of art historian Eduardo Volpe, "skeptic, scholar, aesthete, renowned spelunker in the deep cave of the Italian Renaissance." These ten stories cover a wide range of character and feeling, but the author remains focused on the difficulty of distinguishing reality from illusion.
