Advance Praise for A Dream Between Two Rivers
"A Dream Between Two Rivers: Stories of Liminality is a precious gem all its own. Folk tales, experimental literature, speculative fiction, and mythology whether invented or neoclassical, all play together here gorgeously. The ghosts of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jose Donoso, Leonora Carrington, and Octavia Butler haunt this potent collection by an author of boundless imaginative gifts. Imagine a poet and painter in another dimension possessed by fever dreams and trying to tell our stories, and that will bring you only somewhere close to the magic of KL Pereira."
—Porochista Khakpour, author of the novels Sons & Other Flammable Objects and The Last Illusion and the memoir Sick
RAGGED; or, THE LOVELIEST LIES OF ALL
by Christopher Irvin
(Cutlass Press, 9780692864623, October 2017)
In a feral twist on crime fiction, Cal, a mutt with a criminal past, must step back into the world of animal violence to avenge the death of his wife and protect his pups from the inherent darkness of nature.
A stunning anthropomorphic tale of love and revenge, Ragged is a dark story of a vibrant animal community in a New England wood. Grieving the loss of his wife to a mysterious illness, Cal must avenge her death and protect his pups from the coming winter and horrors of the forest. It's Wind in the Willows and Fantastic Mr. Fox meets Fargo, as Irvin's signature slice-of-life crime style takes on a whole new realm.
Christopher Irvin’s debut collection, Safe Inside the Violence, was a finalist for the 2016 Anthony Award for Best Anthology or Collection. He is also the author of Federales and Burn Cards. He lives in Boston, MA with his wife and two sons.
