Description

In these marvelously inventive stories, Samantha Hunt imagines numerous ways in which human lives might be altered by the otherworldly: an FBI agent falls in love with a robot built for a suicide mission; a young woman unintentionally cheats on her husband when she is transformed into a deer; two strangers become lovers and find themselves responsible for the resurrection of a dog; a woman tries to start her life anew after the loss of a child but riddles that new life with lies; thirteen pregnant teenagers develop a strange relationship with the founding fathers of American history; a lonely woman's fertility treatments become the stuff of science fiction. With offbeat humor and an unguarded gaze, Hunt conjures stories that urge an understanding of youth and mortality, magnification and loss - and that hold out hope that we can come to know one another deeply as we stand side-by-side observing this mysterious universe we've found ourselves in.
