Publisher's Summary

A "pitch perfect" (David Sedaris) ensemble of audio talent - featuring Edoardo Ballerini, Kathleen Chalfant, Jonathan Davis, Dion Graham, George Guidall, Priscilla Holbrook, Robin Miles, Elisabeth Rodgers and Barbara Rosenblat - unite for The Face Phantom: Tales Inspired by the Mütter Museum by Kathleen R. Sands. 

With music by award-winning composer Brian DuFord, this chilling, atmospheric collection of short stories is evocative of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. Each of the 12 tales is inspired by an exhibit at the Mütter Museum, a place that is “gorgeous and repulsive at once” (The New Yorker). 

From a widow experiencing transcendence in 19th-century Paris to a daughter confronting a sexual taboo in modern-day San Francisco, Sands lures us into the darkest and ultimately most redemptive realms of the human condition. Contains the stories: "Madame Sunday's Horn", "The Jesus Wound", "What is Written, Sweet Sister?", "Black Bodies", "Half-Life", "The Face Phantom", "Leper Arrested in Ice Cream Scam", "Do Not Feed", "Mother Love", "The Pump Twin", "Boy of Bone", "Freddy Cheng's Live-Die Museum Restaurant".

Critic Reviews

"There are no better narrators than the ones assembled here." (David Sedaris)

"Sands shapes the dark materials of mortality - an assemblage of grief, pleasure and terror - into characters whose experiences take shape in the shadowy margins. Their voices whisper, rustle, and murmur.” (Robert Hicks, director of the Mütter Museum)
