Apparition and Late Fictions (11 Edition)by Thomas Lynch
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
A Methodist minister gone astray, a grieving trout bum gone fishing with his father"s remains, an artist overwhelmed by incarnate beauty'"these are just a few of the iconic yet utterly unique characters in Thomas Lynch"s spirited collection. Set in Michigan"s north woods, in Ohio"s interior, on islands, in casinos, and in distant cities, these stories are linked by the gone and not forgotten: former spouses, dead parents, and missing children. In pursuit of love and its redemptions, these are pilgrims haunted by memory, dogged by desire, made radiant by romance and its denouements.
With the elegant prose of Frederick Busch and the Irish sensibility of William Trevor, Lynch masterfully creates a world where mirage and apparition are commonplace, where people searching for connection and old comforts find them both near at hand and oddly out of reach.

"Lynch has added another chapter to one of the most memorable records in American letters."—William Giraldi, New York Times Book Review
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.
