A boy runs into the supernatural on his way to ask a girl to dance. A young woman wakes up hung over in a goddess’s bed. A mountain climber falls into a crevasse and hears the story of a glacier’s life. An Internet marketer finds a speechless, naked woman on his balcony, covered in feathers. And a young couple discovers that life off the road can sometimes be even harder than life on it.
In his illustrated short story collection Three Dances, debut author Jeff Seymour explores gender, sexuality, youth, and oddness in the midst of beauty. Fans of magical realism and intricate, poetic prose will find plenty to delight in as he wedges his words into the cracks in the sublime, pries them open, and shares the things that fall out.
