Overview

Says Details Magazine, "In pages that tremble with beauty, Wynne gracefully reveals the darker side of human possibilities."

National Book Award winner Paul Monette calls The Other World "a book to handle with asbestos gloves, but well worth the walk through fire."

Paranoia, psychotic breaks, danger, fear, loneliness, yearning. This acclaimed short story collection, first published by City Lights, is peopled by sociopaths, circus performers, tattooed drifters, cross-dressing teenagers and God-fearing families. Its hallucinatory edge makes the everyday seem like another world.

Includes:

"The Other World" - A Christian Right family is too busy trying to protect their children from the "danger of homosexuality" to notice the havoc their own son is unleashing in the neighborhood.

"Lights of Broadway" - A prostitute is shaken to find that one of her clients is a violent homophobe.

"Halloween Card" - a Manhattan party of metrosexual hipsters is unexpectedly thrust into the heartland of Puritan America.

"Raphael" - A cross-dressing teenager spends a lonely Christmas at the Plaza Hotel, hoping to win the love of his chauffeur.

"Nameless Thing" - A love triangle explodes in jealousy and revenge at an El Paso circus.

"Vulture" - A drifter plots to murder the witness to the accidental killing of his girlfriend.
