Dazzling the Gods
  • Dazzling the Gods

  • A brother returns from exile to stir up the past. A macabre performance in the bowels of a Parisian museum must be seen to be believed. Lovers torn apart by heroin confront their loss in wildly divergent ways. A severely disabled husband struggles with the permission he has bestowed. And a widower observes his daughter blossoming amid the carnage of war.

    Rich with dark, beguiling, playful and audacious tales, Dazzling the Gods is the second short story collection from award-winning author Tom Vowler.
