In these three stories, a young, asocial woman remembers the oddly honest things she wrote in her high school classmates' yearbooks and contemplates her scarred life, imagining an escape with an apparition she calls the Entity.

And a choose-your-own-adventure novel for grown-ups concludes the volume
The truth about Celia by Kevin Brockmeier( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the award winning author of Things That Fall from the Sky, a richly nuanced and deeply moving novel about the disappearance of a young girl, as told by her devastated father. Celia is seven years old on the day she goes missing. Her father, Christopher, is giving a tour of their historic house; her mother, Janet, is at an orchestra rehearsal. Celia is outside playing. She rides her bicycle. She throws a rubber ball against the roof. She disappears. A writer of fantasy and science fiction, Christopher finds himself drawn into a grief induced world of wishful fantasy in which Celia still exists. Plunging into his work to help him cope with her disappearance, he writes of its effects from the points of view of the people who are still haunted by her absence: Janet, the policeman who is in charge of the case, and Christopher himself-each voice contributing to the heart-wrenching picture of a town subtly, but lastingly, changed. The Truth About Celia is a novel of remarkable understanding-an extraordinary exploration of profound loss and inconsolable grief

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fantasy is more than a genre boundary. Fantasy is a state of mind. It is being visited by an angel, called by a corpse, or having a well-mannered conversation with Frankenstein's monster.

In this, the third volume of the highly acclaimed Best American Fantasy series, twenty-one authors explore the boundaries of the real and the unreal with wit, imagination, and whimsy..."--P.
