This is a most peculiar sort of book. Dragonfly Heart is more than just a collection of short stories it's a series of postcards from the unconscious, a hallway of doors into the dream world, a kaleidoscope of symbols, thoughts and emotion. Two lovers separated by war communicate across the ocean by writing letters in the sand a man develops an unusually intimate relationship with a red tricycle a girl learns the secret of what the tooth fairy does with all those teeth sleepwalkers dance beneath the pale moonlight angels play hooky in the Elysian Fields roses fall from the sky like rain, and city streets rise up in rebellion against humankind. Often whimsical and seductive, sometimes dark and disturbing, Dragonfly Heart is a book that you will not soon forget.
