Description
Literal as well as metaphorical monsters inhabit this book of 38 innovative fictions. Here the reader will encounter not only zombies and ghosts, but a lyrical dream braided into a brutal and sorrowful real world. Monsters' vision embodies the heartbreakingly private and depressingly public--and the funny flipside of it all.
