Publication Date: June 7, 2005
In contrast to his often nightmarish, satirical, groundbreaking novels of the 1990s--Wild at Heart, Perdita Durango, and Night People among them--"Do the Blind Dream? "continues in the tender and deeply introspective vein revealed in two recent works: Gifford's memoir "The Phantom Father" (named a "New York Times" Notable Book), and the award-winning novella "Wyoming." From the intimate, stylistically daring examination of the darkest secrets in the history of an Italian family, to the terrible but often beautiful fears and discoveries of childhood, to the sardonic, desperate confusion of adult life, "Do the Blind Dream?" reveals an exceptionally versatile, highly tuned sensibility.
