Deprivation; or, Benedetto Furioso: An Oneiromancy
Steeped in the romance of Renaissance Italian literature, Ben Lansing isn’t coping well with waking life. In Deprivation, a novel as real as a fairy tale or romantic Renaissance epic, neither Ben nor the reader can ever feel certain of being awake or dreaming, walking the streets of Boston or the mazy paths of dreamland. Can you separate wish from fulfilment? Do you want to?
You Will Meet a Stranger Far from Home: wonder stories
From the author of Safe as Houses and The Abode of Bliss, ten wondrous tales of yesterday, today, and tomorrow—of our familiar world and others.
Alex Jeffers’s first collection of fantastical stories is a treacherous box of delights.
The Abode of Bliss: Ten Stories for Adam
A bilingual childhood and youth in cosmopolitan İstanbul, city of the world's desire, and the Aegean resort of Bodrum. A bewildering trip by ship and train and jet across Europe and the Atlantic to college in America, that strange and terrifying country. Friendships, passionate affairs, one-night stands—a richly dissatisfying erotic education. A wedding, a death, an act of violence.
Do You Remember Tulum? novella in the form of a love letter
Do You Remember Tulum? is a story about memory, about learning to love and be loved, set among the exotic Maya ruins of Tulum and Palenque in southern Mexico. A young man returns to Mexico, where landscape, art, and memory compel him to confront the events that shaped him a decade before. A dizzying travelogue, this short novel maps the geographies of the deep roots of love.
