This collection of sixteen tales of horror and the macabre contains the kinds of stories one reads compulsively — helplessly enthralled by their seductive allure, their perversions and truths, their violence and centered peace. The morbid curiosity you might not knowingly possess is unstoppably aroused, teased, provoked, and ultimately driven to a consummately satisfying, eminently unsurpassed conclusion of literary pleasure. Alternately terrifying and fascinating, this collection is more than a nightmarish excursion into the hellish simplicity of honest emotion and authentic humanity, full of the flashback persistence of unwholesome eroticism and an addiction to sin. It is also a furious wellspring of insight and virtue — a painfully funny one, in fact, alive with the bittersweet irony that insinuates itself into so much of life and fiction alike.
