The Old and the Lost

The Old and the Lost

A collection of stories by

"I was born in a land of bayous, raised between rivers," Glenn Blake writes. "There is a place in Southeast Texas where two rivers meet and become one. There is a long bridge over these waters, and as you drive across, you can look to the south and see where the Old River and the Lost River become the Old and the Lost. You can look out as far as you can see and watch this wide water become the bay."

These fourteen stories are set in the swamps, bayous, and sloughs of Southeast Texas, a region that is subsiding - sinking inches every year. The characters who inhabit Blake's haunting landscape - awash in their own worlds, adrift in their own lives - struggle to salvage what they can of their hopes and dreams from the encroaching tides.
