dc.description.abstract A More Foreign Country is a collection of short stories set mostly in Florida that deal with encounters with the uncanny—unusual, sometimes violent, experiences that can make even the familiar and benign seem foreign and dangerous. These stories also deal with the things on which the mind can fixate—a car accident, a trampoline, jack-o’-lanterns, the Floridan aquifer. In these stories, boys explore an abandoned subdivision, a deputy searches for an escaped lion, and a man buries his neighbor’s cat, and they all pursue human connections and meaning. en_US
