"Elana Greenfield and the English language use each other beautifully. She makes little plays, stories long and short. The short ones, on another day, might have been poems. She is a lovely, lively writer."—Grace Paley

This new collection of dramatic short tales is a remarkable first work by dramatist Elana Greenfield. In these stories, the author peers into the supernatural with passion, humor, irony and a remarkable matter-of-fact voice. In "Possessed by a Demon," the devil reveals himself through two women who are both the narrators and the central characters. In "Talent," Greenfield tells the story of a woman trying to transcend the elusiveness of love. And in "The Premonitions," she lyrically predicts the life of Jesus. Together these pieces work toward self-discovery and awareness, while relinquishing the need to explain the inexplicable.

Elana Greenfield lives in New York City.

From the Publisher:

"Combining fiction, poetry, drama and other genres, Elana Greenfield is a master of the kind of hybrid writing that energizes meaning and touches us as readers; her work is no mere postmodernist sampling, for here the many forms cohere into a revelant and emotionally profound entity."

Douglas Messerli - Publisher
