About this title:

Synopsis: "You should be here; he's simply magnificent." These are the final words a biologist hears before his Margaret Mead-like wife dies at the hands of Godzilla. The words haunt him as he studies the Kaiju (Japan's giant monsters) on an island reserve, attempting to understand the beauty his wife saw.

"The Return to Monsterland" opens Where We Go When All We Were Is Gone, a collection of twelve fabulist and genre-bending stories inspired by Japanese folklore, historical events, and pop culture. In "Rokurokubi", a man who has the demonic ability to stretch his neck to incredible lengths tries to save a marriage built on secrets. The recently dead find their footing in "The Inn of the Dead's Orientation for Being a Japanese Ghost". In "Girl Zero", a couple navigates the complexities of reviving their deceased daughter via the help of a shapeshifter. And, in the title story, a woman instigates a months-long dancing frenzy in a Tokyo where people don't die but are simply reborn without their memories.

Every story in the collection turns to the fantastic, the mysticism of the past, and the absurdities of the future to illuminate the spaces we occupy when we are at our most vulnerable.

About the Author: Originally from Hawaii and the San Francisco Bay Area, Sequoia Nagamatsu was educated at Grinnell College and Southern Illinois University. He is the managing editor of Psychopomp Magazine, and his work has appeared in publications such as Conjunctions, ZYZZYVA, The Bellevue Literary Review, Tin House's Open Bar, Lightspeed MagazineThe Fairy Tale Review, Black Warrior Review, and One World: A Global Anthology of Short Stories, among others. He resides in Minnesota with his wife where he teaches creative writing at St. Olaf College.

(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description Black Lawrence Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Fiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. "A combination of the mystical, magical, and marvelous, Sequoia Nagamatsu weaves a collection of bold, hysterical, and moving tales into an unforgettable debut. From shape- shifters, to star-makers, to babies made of snow, the characters in WHERE WE GO WHEN ALL WE WERE IS GONE form a community of longing, of the surreal, of wonder. What a joy it is to read each and every story." Michael Czyzniejewski "Sequoia Nagamatsu's universe is one in which modern Japan and its ancient folklore play in the same delightful puddle. Creepy, unnerving, and full of heart, these tales of love and demons, death and Godzilla, loss and possibility, will creep into your dreams and enchant your imagination." Kelly Luce".
