Summary

"If Mother Goose and Philip K. Dick had a love child, and Richard Brautigan raised him in Watermelon Sugar, he might write stories like Ben Loory." -Jonathan Evison Loory's collection of wry and witty, dark and perilous contemporary fables is populated by people-and monsters and trees and jocular octopi-who are united by twin motivations: fear and desire. In this singular universe, televisions talk (and sometimes sing), animals live in small apartments where their nephews visit from the sea, and farmers grow trees that bear magical lemons. In a voice full of fable, myth, and dream, Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Daydraws us into a world of delightfully wicked recognitions, and introduces us to a writer of uncommon talent and imagination.
