Victoria Nelson’s stories, set in her native California, and New Zealand, link vivid natural settings with characters caught up in events not of their making. A San Francisco poet is kidnapped by the Russian Mafia; an American visiting a provincial New Zealand town is gradually caught up in her host’s immersion in Maori culture; a hapless stockbroker is pursued by a woman living in an abandoned school bus; a Halloween party on a Sausalito houseboat takes on an unexpected dimension.

Victoria Nelson’s previous books include a study of the supernatural grotesque, The Secret Life of Puppets (winner of the Modern Languages Association award for comparative literary studies). She is also the co-translator of Letters, Drawings, and and author of a travel memoir about Hawaii. All the stories have been published in magazines, including Raritan and Southwest Review. This is her first book for Five Leaves.
