Publisher's Summary

A dazzling new collection of stories from the critically acclaimed author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for The Day
Ben Loory returns with a second collection of timeless tales, inviting us to enter his worlds of whimsical fantasy, deep empathy, and playful humor, in the signature voice that drew listeners to his highly praised first collection. In stories that eschew literary realism, Loory's characters demonstrate richly imagined and surprising perspectives, whether they be dragons or swordsmen, star-crossed lovers or long-lost twins, restaurateurs dreaming of Paris or cephalopods fixated on space travel. In propulsive language that brilliantly showcases Loory's vast imagination, Tales of Falling and Flying expands our understanding of how fiction can work and is sure to cement his reputation as one of the most innovative short-story writers working today.

Bizarre

This book is pretty bad author says in his dedication that you don't have to be Tolstoy but you have to have stories that make sense or have some twist. Couple of the stories I was like what?. after 30 min i was wasting my time. kudos on the art work it got me to buy the book .The performance was pretty good .
