Summary
Seven unsettling works from one of our greatest literary imaginations. A precocious eleven-year-old girl, in thrall to the mysterious black sheep of the family, climbs into his sky-blue Chevy for a drive into the unknown...A university transfer student becomes increasingly obsessed with the murder of a female classmate, placing her own sense of self in peril...A recent widow fantasises about transforming into a great flying predator, unerring and pitiless in the hunt...A trusting group of bird-watchers is borne to a remote part of the globe, and to a harrowing fate...These meticulously crafted, deeply disquieting stories confront the dangers that surround us, and the dangers that lurk within
