The Vanishing Man is a collection of linked short stories about a man trying to come to terms with his past, a religious upbringing, in an ever-changing personal world that constantly throws him into self-doubt. This is a book about faith, families, and the meaning of love, told from a distinctly masculine point of view. The men in these stories are often defined by what they don't say, what they do instead, and how they react to each other between the lies and between the lines. They are often right about everything except themselves and it's within this hazy, poetic world of self-doubt that the narrator of the stories lives and breathes.
