Out of the Woods
Three sons send their father to Valhalla in his old jalopy. A rusted robot waits on the stone wall by a child’s bus stop. An undertaker is one coin short at the river Styx. In the fourteen yarns spun in this collection, E. Christopher Clark weaves the fabulous with the mundane, leading us through the maze of his imagination. Fathers and the daughters they find, girls and the dogs they’ve loved, and a woman from Kansas with a cyclone in her heart — find out what happens when people go too far, love too hard, and take too much as they make their way Out of the Woods.
