In a Mist explores longing, loss and isolation. This debut collection of short stories examines the lives of socially isolated individuals with obsessive interests and desires. These lonely protagonists find solace in emotionally evocative forms of cultural expression such as early jazz, classic cinema and renaissance motets. The transcendent potential of music is a recurring theme of this collection.
