He Runs the Moon, Tales from the Cities

January 11, 2016

We’re delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of He Runs the Moon, Tales from the Cities, a new short story collection by Wendy Brandmark.

He Runs the Moon is a collection of wonderfully atmospheric stories of life in the rundown Capitol Hill area of Denver in the early 1970s, in the Bronx, New York during the 1950s & 60s and in the Boston and Cambridge area in the 1970s.

He Runs the Moon

The Denver stories form a narrative of a Gothic city with people who feel they don’t quite belong.  Figures from the ‘old world’ haunt the children in stories of New York City and in the Boston tales characters piece together dreams from the fragments of their lives.

Wendy Brandmark

Wendy Brandmark is the author of The Stray American, a novel published in December 2014 and longlisted for the Fiction Uncovered Prize in 2015. Stories from He Runs the Moon have been published in literary magazines including The Massachusetts Review, Lilith Magazine, Strand Magazine, North American Review, The Jewish Quarterly and The Warwick review.
