"There are regions of the mind that come unfettered when we
sleep...Despite our efforts, whether to make sense of what we have
seen, or to purge it from our memory, a moment of stark lucidity
lingers like a bright spot on the retina..."
So begins this stunning collection of short fiction by a writer
destined to become an American favorite. Impressions in Half-light:
Fourteen Tales from the Underside of Reason is an eclectic blend of
stories ranging from the poignant and thought-provoking, to the
raucous and titillating.
"For Adele" narrates the psychological disintegration of an
unsuspecting man who awakens to find that his life-overnight-has
altered irrevocably. In "Thieves in the Temple," the fight between
good and evil takes a surprising turn when a fire and brimstone
preacher puts an ancient weapon to a shocking new use. "Not
Counting Hope" is the disturbing account of a married couple caught
in an alternate stream of American history: an America you will
recognize instantly, but one you will never believe. "The Thing" is
a hilarious satire of male ego and a tribute to the courage of
girlfriends everywhere. "When I See Home" asks whether hell itself
is only a nightmare from which we cannot escape.
..".Not dreams in the strictest sense, they] are more akin to
ethereal notions caught in a supple medium, as fingerprints in warm
wax.... Half-light is the medium. Story is the outcome..."
