Description

“Paquette was born to write horror. These subtle, varied stories are sometimes creepy, sometimes hilarious, but always unexpected, and the sharp writing took my breath away. I could not stop reading.” Nancy Werlin, Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling novelist

Perfect for fans of Carmen Maria Machado and Kelly Link

Stories I Told My Dead Lover 

Eight searing tales of psychological horror that probe the darkest and most deeply buried parts of the human psyche …

A child is forced to grow up too soon.

A woman trusts her doctor too much.

An abandoned woman isn’t as alone as she thinks.

An idyllic holiday masks an unspeakable act of violence.

Driven, desperate, fighting for the power to choose their own fate, Paquette’s characters dare to push back at the walls that hold them in.

Come watch them burn.

Praise

“Paquette was born to write horror. These subtle, varied stories are sometimes creepy, sometimes hilarious, but always unexpected, and the sharp writing took my breath away. I could not stop reading.” Nancy Werlin, Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling novelist

“Combine Joe Hill’s sense of the macabre with Karen Russell’s dark whimsy and you get Stories I Told My Dead Lover by Jo Paquette. These stories lodge in the imagination like splinters and must be examined and returned to, time and again.” Erin Dionne, acclaimed author of Bad Choices Make Good Stories

“Paquette’s stories are eerie and enigmatic, at times darkly funny, and always unpredictable. This is a strong collection of unsettling tales.” Tom Perrotta, bestselling author of Tracy Flick Can’t Win and The Leftovers
