“In Apparition & Late Fictions Thomas Lynch has created a collection of beautifully written and quirky stories about the allure, allusiveness, and redemptive powers of love and the variety and finality of death. These evocative tales, set mostly in the Midwest, are filled with memorable characters who will keep anyone who loves good writing turning the pages.”
— Nancy Fontaine, The Yankee Bookshop, Woodstock, VT

These stories are linked by the gone and not forgotten: former spouses, dead parents, missing children. Lynch creates a world in which people searching for connection and old comforts find them both near at hand and oddly out of reach.
