Although the characters in Pourciau’s stories change face, story to story they all inhabit a world dominated by interior voices revealing fragmented selves. They find difficulty making their inner worlds, with their competing narratives and emotions, fit into the world surrounding them. As they confront everyday predicaments and encounters, they are oftentimes averse to expressing their thoughts, thereby leading themselves deeper into a conflicted interior landscape.

Praise For…

“In Glen Pourciau’s wondrously crafted and surprising stories, characters lead measured lives until unconscious desires break free and disrupt the superficial calm. Pourciau meticulously peels back the surface of the ordinary to expose the emotional threat that lies beneath so that a simple trip to the mall becomes a tale about the dangers and deceptions of intimacy. These epigrammatic stories are fleet, plainspoken, and direct and they will get under your skin and unsettle you to your core.”
