Notes

Description
In the weird and wonderful tradition of Kelly Link and Karen Russell, Amber Sparks's dazzling new collection bursts forth with stories that render the apocalyptic and otherworldly hauntingly familiar. In (3z(BThe Cemetery for Lost Faces,(3y(B two orphans translate their grief into taxidermy, artfully arresting the passage of time. The anchoring novella, (3z(BThe Unfinished World,(3y(B unfurls a surprising love story between a free and adventurous young woman and a dashing filmmaker burdened by a mysterious family. Sparks's stories populated with sculptors, librarians, astronauts, and warriors form a veritable cabinet of curiosities. Mythical, bizarre, and deeply moving, The Unfinished World and Other Stories heralds the arrival of a major writer and illuminates the search for a brief encounter with the extraordinary.
