Description

Look at the picture on the cover, there's a child, a girl in a red dress; there's a bird, a crow in a blue white sky. And then there are a few things you cannot see.
-f r o m If You Are Afraid of Heights

But the crow sees everything: In Part One, a man and a woman meet in a midnight road accident and fall in love. In Part Two, a reporter arrives in a small town to uncover the story of a child's rape and murder. In Part Three, a young girl, shaken by suicides in her neighborhood, begins to fear for her parents' lives. And the lives of all of these characters overlap and intersect in a magical realm that lies somewhere between fantasy and reality. Ultimately, multiple coincidences and recurring motifs pull the parts together and reveal the ways in which all three tales are both their own stories and the many sides of one story.
