Ce qu’en dit l’éditeur

In stories both absurd and all-too-real, Christopher Evans paints a portrait of the uncanniness of modern life through characters trapped in the space between expectation and reality.

Nothing Could Be Further from the Truth is peopled by strays — those who fall for the allure of nostalgia, grapple with male fragility, deny familial trauma, and acquiesce to authority. Resignation and reinvention are always a breath apart for these characters whose lives have fallen short of their dreams, and for others who never expected more.

A healthy-pet-food producer is haunted by a pop song from her past. Nine siblings band together to raise themselves after parental abandonment. A domestic argument reveals a woman’s supernatural gift. A failing musician finds his calling soundtracking another man’s life. 

Stalked by who you think you are, who others think you are, and who you want to be, Nothing Could Be Further from the Truth is a collection at the threshold of perception and reality.
