These stories occupy the space between dark realities and the fantastic leaps of faith people make to survive. Connecting them is the journey: people searching for solace, insight, purpose; gathering up their lives into discernible pieces of fact and conviction, hoping to get it right.
“Controlled, poetically laconic prose . . . a perfect distillation of the ways that grief seems unfathomably large and mysterious.” – Lev Raphael, author of Rosedale in Love
