Gnarled Bones and Other Stories

By Tam May

Short stories, Literary fiction, Magical realism | Paperback


Gnarled Bones and Other Stories is a collection of five short stories where strange and spooky events affect people’s lives. A newly divorced woman goes back to school to begin a new chapter of her life only to find herself circling back to where she started. A mailroom secretary and her friends spend a day at the circus where childhood nostalgia mingles brutal fear. A lonely woman ventures out of her isolated apartment one quiet Saturday afternoon to an art exhibit that leaves an eerie imprint on her psyche*. A middle-aged violinist reveals the mystery behind his declining artistic powers to a stranger on a train. And the title story weaves journal entries and first-person narrative to paint a picture of the complicated bond between an orphaned brother and sister. These stories leave an impression of how the past shadows the present and future.
