Reel follows two lives that collide at a Seattle punk show, and the strange consequences that arise.

Marianne fears stagnation, and has begun to crave the rootless travel of her youth.

Published: Civil Coping Mechanisms - August 15th, 2016

The stories in Transitory consist of familiar locations turned bizarre and longstanding relationships sacrificed to singular obsessions. Unearthly figures appear on a city street, the crew of a vessel in the North Atlantic see disquieting visions in the sky, and students become fixated on a film with mysterious origins.

D. Foy's second novel is a tornado of brutal Americana. Patricide is a heavy metal Huck Finn that whips up the haunted melancholy of Kerouac's Doctor Sax, a novel of introspection and youth in its corruption that seethes with the deadly obsession of Moby-Dick, and the darkness of Joy Williams' State of Grace.
