The Heaven of Animals, award-winning young writer David James Poissant's stunning debut, has been one of the most-praised story collections of the year. Named one of Amazon's Best Short Story Collections of 2014, compared to the work of Richard Ford and Amy Hemple in the Los Angeles Review of Books, to Anton Chekhov, Raymond Carver, and George Saunders in the New York Post, and the subject of a full-page rave by Clyde Edgerton in Garden & Gun, this "collection of vicious and heartbreaking vignettes" (The Orlando Sentinel) is a must-read for any fiction lover.
In each of the stories in this remarkable debut, Poissant explores the tenuous bonds of family - fathers and sons, husbands and wives - as they are tested by the sometimes brutal power of love. His strikingly true-to-life characters have reached a precipice, chased there by troubles of their own making. Standing at the brink, each must make a choice: Leap, or look away?
