Monsters
By

Rating
Literal as well as metaphorical monsters inhabit this book of 38 innovative fictions. Here the reader will encounter not only zombies and ghosts, but a lyrical dream braided into a brutal and sorrowful real world. Monsters' vision embodies the heartbreakingly private and depressingly public-and the funny flipside of it all.

Reviews

"Brimming with real and imagined monsters, Brennan delivers striking meditations on memory, time, fragility, and strength. . . . The majority of the characters in this book speak of routine, predictable occurrences. But these tales--some less than a page--are not conventional; they're beautifully strange and often surreal. Brennan introduces fantastical elements that dramatically transform relatable characters and familiar settings into something new, like a family adopting a talking cat. Brennan's collection of compassionate and intelligent fiction is a showcase for a very skilled author."-- "Publishers Weekly" Brimming with real and imagined monsters, Brennan delivers striking meditations on memory, time, fragility, and strength. . . .
