The bestselling, award-winning author of The Winter Soldier and The Piano Tuner, brings to the page a collection of interlaced tales about life’s challenges and mysteries. A balloonist makes a discovery that changes her life forever. A telegraph operator finds an unexpected companion in the middle of the Amazon. A doctor is beset by seizures, in which he is possessed by a second, perhaps better, version of himself. And in Regency London, a bare-knuckle fighter prepares to face his most fearsome opponent, while a young mother seeks a miraculous cure for her ailing son. These are tales of ecstasy, epiphany, and what the New York Times Magazine called the “struggle for survival…hand to hand, word to word,” by “one of the finest prose stylists in American fiction.”

Daniel Mason is a physician and the author of the novels The Piano Tuner, A Far Country, and The Winter Soldier. His work has been translated into twenty-eight languages and adapted for opera and theater. A recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, he is currently a clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at Stanford University, where he teaches courses in the humanities and medicine.

Carol Edgarian is the acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller Three Stages of Amazement and the international bestseller Rise the Euphrates, winner of the ANC Freedom Prise. Her articles and essays have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, NPR, and W, among many others. She is the co-founder and editor of Narrative, the leading digital publisher of fiction, poetry, and art. Edgarian lives with her family in San Francisco.
