Big Dark Hole: And Other Stories (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
World Fantasy Award finalistIt sounds innocuous. The routine world of
college teaching. Evenings on a porch with your wife. And then . . . maybe it's an unexpected light in a dark
and uninhabited house, maybe it's a drainage tunnel that some poor kid
is suddenly compelled to explore. Maybe there's a monkey in the woods or
an angel that you'll need to fight if you want to gain tenure. Jeffrey Ford's stunning new collection Big Dark Hole
is about those big, dark holes that we find ourselves once in a while
and maybe, too, the big dark holes that exist inside of us.
