About this title

From Publishers Weekly:

O'Leary (Other Voices, Other Doors) presents enigmatic slices-of-life that cut close to the heart in this collection of recent short pieces and novel excerpts, where silence is a third character in a two-person dialogue as is the case in the short story "The Me After the Rock." Many of the stories explore the fraternal bonds between characters. This sort of companionship plays an important role in "Catching a Dream" and "Yo-Yo Stradivarius & Me;" both track the buoyancy of man after heartbreak, whereas in "The Verge of a Pucker," two male characters meet to discover how to please a woman. The collection also features a few of O'Leary's more fantastical writings: In the title story, he toys with the point of view of a female protagonist with second sight who argues for Earth against an alien invader, and includes an encounter with Lucifer and God after September 11th in "The Bearing of Light." Science Fiction, fantasy, or not, the imagination is at great work with these selections; their reoccurring themes of dreams, birds and absent (or failed) mothers transcend genre. While the quality of the stories is quite high, the excerpts are short-several under ten pages, making the collection more like a sampler.
