The short fiction of Thaisa Frank has captivated readers for two decades, and now many of those pieces are collected in one volume, along with several new stories. In the title story, a lonely mother and housewife orders an enchanted man from a website called The Wondrous Traveler, who arrives with instructions for use and a list of frequently asked questions about enchantment. In 'Thread,' two circus performers who pass through the eye of a needle become undone by a complicated love triangle. In 'Henna,' a young writing teacher must contend with an exotic student who will not write, her hands covered in dye and her fingers 'sprouting innumerable gardens. ' And in 'The Loneliness of the Midwestern Vampire,' the undead descend upon the heartland of the country and become accustomed to its friendlier way of life, attending barn raisings and feasting on cattle in an attempt to normalize their darker passions. These are vibrant, compelling stories that examine the distance between imagination and reality, and how characters bridge that gap in their attempt to reach one another.
