- Gold, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)
The thirteen stories in Chris Tarry’s richly imagined debut lay bare the insurmountable forces that determine who we are and who we become. From an out-of-work dragon-slaying father to a family arguing aboard a rocket ship, the stories use fantastic settings, blazing wit, and imaginative circumstances to explore very human truths. The stories work to reconcile the public self with the private heart. To contemplate the monsters we carry home and lay bare for the ones we love the most.
