What I Didn't See free pdf World Fantasy Award Winner Shirley Jackson Awards shortlist Locus Award shortlist Story Prize Notable Books Frank O'Connor Award longlist "Beautifully written and subtly discomforting stories."--Nancy Pearl "An exceptionally versatile author."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch In her moving and elegant new collection, New York Times bestseller Karen Joy Fowler writes about John Wilkes Booth's younger brother, a one-winged man, a California cult, and a pair of twins, and she digs into our past, present, and future in the quiet, witty, and incisive way only she can. The sinister and the magical are always lurking just below the surface: for a mother who invents a fairy-tale world for her son in "Halfway People"- for Edwin Booth in "Booth's Ghost," haunted by his fame as "America's Hamlet" and his brother's terrible actions- for Norah, a rebellious teenager facing torture in the World Fantasy and Shirley Jackson Award winner "The Pelican Bar" as she confronts Mama Strong, the sadistic boss of a rehabilitation facility- for the narrator recounting her descent in "What I Didn't See." With clear and insightful prose, Fowler's stories measure the human capacities for hope and despair, brutality and kindness. This collection, which includes two Nebula Award winners and stories which have been significantly rewritten since first publication, is sure to delight readers, even as it pulls the rug out from underneath their feet.
