"I finished this book with my heart pounding and grateful, my coffee cold and my smile wide and crying like a baby." - Daniel Handler

Ranging from Kentucky to Florida to Haiti, these stories enact the struggle to remain physically and spiritually alive throughout an untamable, turbulent world.

Described as an author whose "voice lands somewhere between William Faulkner and Stephen King" (New Pages), Kyle Minor presents a dark, compelling collection of fiction showcasing the talent that has earned him multiple literary honors.
