Description

The New York Times bestselling author of the "supernatural tour de force" (M.J. Rose, bestselling author) The Map of Time crafts an enchanting collection of twelve evocative and macabre stories delving into the magical, ordinary, and darker aspects of love in all its powerful forms. A young girl receives letters from her lost doll; a cat madly in love with her human neighbor; a bored office worker escapes his monotonous life by traveling on his grandfather's model train; a man gives all of himself to the woman he loves, piece by piece. These are just a few of the unforgettable characters that inhabit FElix J. Palma's gorgeously wrought short story collection, by turns mesmerizing, morbid, and melancholy. This collection contains selections from three previously published anthologies, bringing together in one volume some of Palma's most celebrated stories. Available for the first time in English and with his signature "lyrical storytelling and a rich attention to detail" (Library Journal), The Heart and Other Viscera explores the wonder, madness, and heartbreak of love, and the lengths to which some are willing to go to protect, honor, and cherish the ones they love.
