Fiction. In thirteen wistful and haunting stories, Sam Reese traverses the sweeping plains of memory, transforming their hidden landscapes into something familiar. A woman searches for the mysterious place of her birth. An apartment becomes a forest, a bottomless lake a graveyard. A search can return you home again, and a painting can cradle more than just its own history. The tales in COME THE TIDE, are circling birds, soaring and diving to find that thing we're all seeking: ourselves.
