Hailed by Daisy Johnson as “one to watch,” Come the Tide is the debut short story collection from Sam Reese.
“A masterful collection”—Lochlan Bloom
“Intimate yet mysterious”—Prabda Yoon
“Deceivingly quiet and lushly sensuous”—Lara Williams
In thirteen haunting stories, Sam Reese traverses the sweeping plains of memory, transforming their hidden landscapes into something familiar. A woman searches for the mysterious place of her birth. An apartment becomes a forest, a bottomless lake a graveyard. A search can return you home again, and a painting can cradle more than just its own history. The tales in Come the Tide, both real and imagined, are circling birds, soaring and diving to find that thing we’re all seeking: ourselves.
