    For more than 30 years, Jonathan Carroll’s writing has defied genre conventions. Known for his novels—including The Land of Laughs, Bones of the Moon, Sleeping in Flame, and many other compelling and often surreal stories—Carroll has also created an eloquent body of short fiction. The Woman Who Married a Cloud brings his stories together for the first time.

    Alec says: "Great Stories, Mixed Narration"
    "Prepare to become an anti-social traveler"

    Where does The Woman Who Married a Cloud rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the better short story collections - and certainly one of the best collected works of any author - on audible. I listened in the car, on the walk into town, to the grocery store, between classes, while washing dishes... you get it. These stories reminded me of what I love about the genre of magic realism, speculative fiction and contemporary fantasy: not only are Jonathan Carroll's metaphors and language gorgeous on their own, but when they separate from the "real world," you forget that it could be any other way because what is being narrated is so full of truth and beauty and momentum. The narrators also do a wonderful job, capturing pace and inflection of the characters in each story. I'm genuinely sad that it's over. Oh wait, I can listen again...
