From the Publisher"Spooky and tender with McNally’s signature mix of compassion and irony, these complex stories feature characters haunted by their dead and missing, dazed by drugs and obsession, and living in strange isolation . . . McNally has always been an embracing and funny writer. He now reaches deeper psychic levels in these edgy, knowing, and rough yet entrancing short stories."—Donna Seaman, Booklist
"The ghosts of these stories aren’t just consumed by loss, they’re imprisoned by it—choosing, each time, to make their lives shrines to the past rather than taking a stab at the unknown future. In a lesser writer’s hands, such stories would be predictable retreads. But McNally makes us see the real tragedy: in the absence of love, embracing grief can be the next best thing."—National Public Radio, "Books We Like"
