9781935754633: Dead Dog Lying & Other Stories

The stories of Dead Dog Lying shine a hard light on society's misfits: the misshapen in mind and body, children mystified by the adult world, and grownups trying--but never quite managing--to get it right. A man receives a message from a cell phone swallowed by a fish he's caught. A boy grows antlers that give him athletic prowess. A fiction writer learns about reality by walking into an improv play. Long after these allegorical stories are ingested, they will haunt the reader's troubled sleep.

Review:

These truly enjoyable, offbeat tales showcase a wide-ranging talent guaranteed to please any reader. --Tim Gautreaux, author of The Missing

In Norman German's mesmerizing stories of south Louisiana, the ordinary is the fantastic, and the fantastic becomes the everyday....Horror and wonder live side by side in these powerful tales of haunted states of mind. Dead Dog Lying takes hold and will not let go. --Gerald Duff, author of Dirty Rice and Blue Sabine
