These thirteen stories are our own lives, inside out. A boy's summer
romance doesn't end in that good kind of heartbreak, but in blood. A girl
on a fishing trip makes a friend in the woods who's exactly what she
needs, except then that friend follows her back to the city. A father hears a
voice through his baby monitor that shouldn't be possible, but now he
can't stop listening. A woman finds out that the shipwreck wasn't
the disaster, but who she's shipwrecked with. A big brother learns just
what he will, and won't, trade for one night of sleep. From prison guards
making unholy alliances to snake-oil men in the Old West doling out justice,
these stories carve down into the body of the mind, into our most base fears and
certainties, and there's no anesthetic. Turn the light on if you want, but
that just makes for more shadows.
