Publisher's Summary

Powerful and haunting, the 10 stories in this debut collection conjure a world where dreams and reality merge, often with dangerous consequences. Michael Hyde explores the relationships between illusion and reality, delusion and clarity, as his characters come to realize that the revelations they wholeheartedly pursue are often not the ones that await them and will move them. A teenage girl obsessed with the death of a classmate hopes to become the killer's next victim, a wayward graveyard attendant punishes the dead for his punishments in life, and a ghostly vision in a garden shed offers a catalyst for one woman's change.

Katherine Anne Porter Prize, Short Fiction, 2005

"These are tales of love-in-extremis. They should be taken as a tonic before bedtime, to stir up our dreams and awaken our compassion." (Sharon Oard Warner, judge, author of Learning to Dance and Deep in the Heart)

"This collection is strong, original, and precious." (Mary Gordon, author of Pearl and Final Payments)

"A brilliant debut, a delightfully harrowing read, and a herald of great things to come. Hyde's stories take no prisoners." (Pinckney A. Benedict, author of Town Smokes)
