Synopsis

In this hauntingly beautiful collection of nine reprinted and six original stories, Ludwigsen…issues an invitation to look past preconceived notions of self and ways of being, and to take a journey to the dark side of imagination.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
#
A house inches eight hundred miles to confess its horrible crime. The last resident of a mental institution discovers he’s not alone. A middle-schooler performs an experiment to determine how much time we fit in dreams. Boys looking for wonder find more than they’re expecting in the Adirondacks with Charles Fort. A detective learns everything he’s ever wanted to know…and some things he hasn’t. In Will Ludwigsen’s stories, the universe has a way of being weird in just the ways we need it to be. There are answers to many of our deepest questions…and they’re usually far more personal and mysterious than we expect. A finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award!
