Description


A Jeffrey Ford story may start out in the innocuous and routine world of college teaching or evenings on a porch with your wife. But inevitably the weird comes crashing in. Maybe it's an unexpected light in a dark and uninhabited house, maybe it's a drainage tunnel that some poor kid is suddenly compelled to explore. Maybe there's a monkey in the woods or an angel that you'll need to fight if you want to gain tenure. Big Dark Hole is about those big, dark holes that we find ourselves once in a while and maybe, too, the big dark holes that exist inside of us.
