Dream Lives of Butterflies

A collection of stories by

This book explores the discrepancy between the haves and the have-nots at the end of the 20th century in America, a time of stock-market boom and working-class bust. "Colbert's words are like is her brilliant exploration of that no-man s land between what we desire and what we must live without that defines Colbert's deep empathy for her characters," writes fiction writer Kim Barnes in her advance praise of the book. Author Madison Smartt Bell writes that this "new episodic novel-in-stories is a jewel in both its form and its feeling, with layers of image and meaning as intricately patterned as the dust on a butterfly's wing."
