Smoke Ghosts & Other Outré Tales

In this collection of dark but humorous short stories, Anthony Wright weaves his past travels in Australia, South East Asia, Mexico, and Central America to create a lively pattern of outré tales, interlaced with the supernatural, in which the author’s outsider philosophy is central to the thread of existence.

From Tom Hibbard:

“In an extremely imaginative and well-written collection of vignettes from travels to adventurous non-tourist destinations, Australian Anthony Wright has invoked Burroughs, Bowles, Dostoyevski, Kerouac, and even to some degree Joyce as he searches out the sacred and profane of contemporary society.  Every bit as depraved and supernatural as Jonathan Lethem’s Fortress of Solitude, Wright’s Smoke Ghosts exposes the soft, desperate underbelly of a humanity whose brittle, narrow-eyed form is all that we are permitted to credit amidst the insanely defensive and manipulated, poison images that emanate from an ever more deceptive mass media.”
