About the book:

Weaving together loss and anxiety with fantastic elements and literary sleight-of-hand, Kevin Brockmeiers richly imagined Things That Fall from the Sky views the nagging realities of the world through a hopeful lens.

In the deftly told These Hands, a man named Lewis recounts his time babysitting a young girl and his inconsolable sense of loss after she is wrenched away. In Apples, a boy comes to terms with the complex world of adults, his first pangs of love, and the bizarre death of his Bible coach. The Jesus Stories examines a people trying to accelerate the Second Coming by telling the story of Christ in every possible way. And in the O. Henry Award winning The Ceiling, a mans marriage begins to disintegrate after the sky starts slowly descending.

Achingly beautiful and deceptively simple, Things That Fall from the Sky defies gravity as one of the most original story collections seen in recent years.
