Fish Trapped Inside the Wind


Fish Trapped Inside the Wind Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a small town in Belgium near the French border on the morning of Saint Woelfreds festival, dead fish lie on the ground, scattered everywhere, as if blown in by the wind. The quarries that were once active now stand empty and will soon be used as toxic waste dumps. Are the fish a sign from the saint?

Blending a realistic portrayal of communal life with elements of fantasy and surrealism, including the lost poems of Arthur Rimbaud, this story narrates how six lives from this provincial town are changed forever.
