East of Memory, West of Magic

Collected Stories

Lainie Jones

East of Memory, West of Magic encompasses twenty three stories in which fairy-tales collide with social realism, dystopias unravel alongside fantasy, and magical realism rubs up against absurdism.

In this constantly changing landscape, past meets future in a jungle cabin, societies disintegrate, a park reclaims its ancient place, a soul chooses a new life-path, and a man is undone by his own cruelty. Threading through these diverse tales are questions about perception, belief, and what it means to be human in a rapidly changing world.
