David Galef's stories, whether longer or as tiny one-page wonders, can contain both humor and fear. In this work the ordinary slips easily into the allegorical, into the dream and sometimes into the nightmare, often leaving the reader with moments of narrative that will stick like a sharp-edged image from a memorable poem or painting. Galef's vision blossoms in a twenty-first century America, but its roots stretch back to the terror behind the oldest folk legends. David Galef has published fifteen books. His awards include a Fulbright fellowship. A co-founder of the MFA program in creative writing at the University of Mississippi, he is now a professor of English at Montclair State University.
