About the Book:
From the the Shirley Jackson and International Horror Guild Award winning author of THE SNOWMAN'S CHILDREN, THE TWO SAMS, THE JANUS TREE, and the Motherless Child Trilogy comes AMERICAN MORONS, a collection of dazzling and haunting tales...
Two traveling college students confront their disintegrating relationship and the new American reality in a breakdown lane along the Italian Superstrade. A woman chases the ghost of her neglectful father to a vanished amusement park at the end of the Long Beach pier. Two recently retired teachers learn just how much Los Angeles has taken from them.
In these atmospheric, wide-ranging, surprisingly playful, and deeply mournful stories, grandkids and widows, ice cream-truck drivers and judges, travelers and invalids all discover — and sometimes even survive — the everyday losses from which the most vengeful ghosts so often spring.
