The unsettling : stories and a novella by Peter Rock( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 285 libraries worldwide
"A stunning, Poe-esque collection of short fiction about outsiders, lost dogs, romance, and life's surprising mysteries. Populated by strangers, ghosts, and other shadowy figures, the thirteen stories in The Unsettling attend to those startling moments when what we have understood as familiar is suddenly revealed as mysterious and foreign. A lonely man saving library books from an outbreak of mold listens to a coworker's tale about a blind woman and imbues it with his own sense of romance; a woman drives a Gold Firebird through the desert with a television playing "Rockford Files" reruns on the passenger seat; and a girl returns to her childhood home to spy on its new inhabitants, not realizing they are aware of her surveillance."--Publisher's description
