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 The Secret Life of Puppets (winner of the Modern Languages Association award for comparative literature studies). She is also the co-translator of Letters, Drawings and Selected Essays of Bruno Schulz and author of a memoir of Hawaii
