Publisher Comments:

"Ryder's is the rare and wonderful prose that engages all five of the senses."—Whiting Award winner Lydia Peele, author of Reasons for and Advantages of Breathing

Pamela Ryder's stories transport us into realms as varied as the language that tells these tales. With sentences that are plain and precise, or lush and illuminating, we journey through a topography of the heart. These fifteen fictions fling the reader ever farther through territories unchartered, and into the literary habitations of uncertainty.

Pamela Ryder is the author of Correction of Drift: A Novel in Stories.

Synopsis:

"Ryder is a vigilance, a pervigilance, a field guide with scruples on every page." - Gordon Lish
