The stories collected here are not Jack Foley's life but a fantastic consciousness in which he is as lost as anyone. Foley writes what he does not know; he writes what he can imagine. The dead sprout up here as easily as leaves of grass. Stylistically the stories range widely--some are comic, some bring tears. All manifest "the strangeness and the power of poetry," plunging us into the enigma of the human heart. --Back cover
