Joan Kessler (ed). This fine collection of 15 stories straddles the thin border between ordinary anxiety & existential nightmare. These tales of dread & darkness ignore the traditional demons haunting country houses or popping up from unopened graves, but instead feature characters inhabiting the familiar scenes of quotidian life. That these are tales of ordinary people makes them all the more disquieting, their horrors more sharply edged, precisely because they are set in modern, everyday reality. From Elizabeth Bowen to Shirley Jackson, from Ray Bradbury to William Trevor, this selection savors the shadows of these nocturnal landscapes, providing us with momentary (& always literary) encounters with this most elusive, & least tamed, landscape of the human heart.
