Description

Perfect for fans of Carmen Maria Machado and Kelly Link, Jo Paquette’s Stories I Told My Dead Lover contains 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.

Advance Praise

“Paquette was born to write horror. These subtle, varied stories are somehow both creepy and hilarious, 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 Russel’s dark whimsy, and you get STORIES I TOLD MY DEAD LOVER, by Ammi-Joan 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
