Anyone who’s driven down a country road and seen the ruins of an old house and wondered what stories it could tell is already an author of a story in The Seven Story House.
Just as a passer-by might imagine what that house was like when it was new, who lived in it, and what happened there, this collection gives a voice to that ruin. There are stories amongst those broken windows and rotting beams that run from when the house was new and shiny to the time where it lays in pieces, old and forgotten.
The Seven Story House tells a few of those stories. The narratives move from light to darkness, serenity to violence, life to death, and, finally, to the hope of rebirth.
