Voices in the Dirt
A dozen tales set from NYC to LA, Asheville to Varanasi. Voices in the Dirt is a transgressive, darkly comical collection of stories, mostly centered around young men struggling with the specter of an incomprehensible world. A banquet server seeks enlightenment by being buried alive (breathing apparatus included!). The son of a dentist confronts an unspeakable horror at an oil baron’s mansion. Karmic retribution is served after a tourist on the Ganges steals a human jawbone from a beached corpse as a ghastly souvenir. If you like wild rides without safety bars, then have a seat.
