Riassunto: The 23 stories in the collection deal with the metaphorical concept of fog as a state produced by grief, mental illness, love, anger, dementia, pain, prejudice or dreams and how the human being refracts reality through these diffused prisms. Protagonists struggle with psychological and physical distortions that lead them down problematic paths, whether due to jealousy or desire in the case of lovers or hypothermia experienced by a fallen mountain climber. In the story, "Fog," set in Ireland, the narrator encounters the real thing.
Dal retro di copertina:
"Laury Egan has the capacity for human understanding which has always defined the top writers of short fiction. In Fog and Other Stories, she has produced a collection of tales which both enter-tain and matter to the soul of the reader. I am particularly a fan of "Fergus," "Split," and "Jango Jacks," and now the delight of this entire collection is sure to stay with me, as the best short stories do. Brava!"--T.D. Johnston, Short Story America
" Fog and Other Stories is a mixed-genre collection of rich, pro-vocative tales. From ruminations on the repercussions of time to mind-bending excursions into the supernatural, examinations of cruelty and kindness to incisive relationship studies, Egan's stories are a satisfying blend of style, plot, and characterization--and exhibit a deep understanding of human nature."
--Greg Miller, author of Scaring the Crows and The Uncanny Valley: Tales from a Lost Town
