(From the publisher):
Half awake, half dreaming, Alden Dennis Weer wanders through the corridors of his life and memory, summoning up the relatives and lovers who made up his past and will influence his future. Through the mysteries of their deaths and the tales of their lives, we learn strange and eery truths - about the Petrified Man, about Finn MacCool's Cat, about the ghost in the orange-juice factory, and the stone pillow.
An extraordinary combination of the mythic vision of fantasy and the thrilling suspense of a mastercrafted ghost story, Peace will awaken your dreams and put you in touch with a magical reality that lies just below the surface of everyday life.
