Fiction. "Jon Steinhagen's THE BIG BOOK OF SOUNDS captures the rhythm of everyday life at its most sinister, deftly leading us into a world that is simultaneously familiar and unsettling. In twenty-two flawless tales, most escapades in form as well as substance, Steinhagen creates a haunting world that is vivid and true and categorically unique. Imagine the spare, sharp prose of Sherwood Anderson layered with Shirley Jackson's eerie genius... and you have maybe an inkling of the adventure in store for you. THE BIG BOOK OF SOUNDS is a work of towering imagination, a collection of carefully burnished gems not to be missed."—Jacob M. Appel
