Semi-autobiographical poetry from the author of "Eating The Child Within" and "The Insect Diviner". Covering topics as diverse as detecting a ghost, losing a friend, or discovering the stories you learned as a child were falsehoods, or as current as Binti Jua - the Gorilla who caught a falling child, American consumerism, and the Golf Oil disaster, Jason Messinger's words "glint like sunlight off fish scales beneath a tumbling creek."
A collection of micro-stories. A princess with a glass foot, a king who only eats swans, the queen of heat. An insect diviner, a sweet smith, a sword swallower, a thistle boy. A secret herb, an elaborate chest, a sandcastle that makes the sea cry. In this collection of short tales Jason Messinger creates small tapestries in the mode of classic fairy tales, but for a reader of modernist sensibilities.
