Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the world of the future, people exist in a perpetual state of rehearsing evacuations, and one mans rehearsal involves leaving his parents behind.

A firespotter knows all too well that where theres smoke, theres fire – but fails to spot the blaze that consumes half her family.

Then theres the Custer impersonator who takes his role in a re-enactment too literally, and too far. The massage therapist who struggles to help a veteran who's biggest regret is tattooed in living detail across his back.

Feel the sting of betrayal via new writing by Ben Marcus, Janine di Giovanni, Karen Russell, Samantha Harvey, Colin Robinson, Jennifer Vanderbes, Callan Wink, John Burnside and a host of others, including debut author Lauren Wilkinson, whose heroine moves through decades with the forward lean of Richard Yates and the grace of Garcia Marquez.
