The Joy of Fishes

joyoffishes200x300By E.H. Lupton

E.H. Lupton’s magical realism take on the romantic ghost story is filled with wonder at the miracle of times, space, and ghosts. The Joy of Fishes tears down the veil as it explores what it means to live on after great loss and to fall in love with life once again.

Mara Daniels is a physicist doing cutting-edge research into the nature of reality at the University of Chicago. She’s an astronomer. She’s an amateur student of Chinese philosophy. And she’s still recovering from last summer’s car crash that killed Benjamin Zhu, her fiancé. It’s a slow process; she can walk without a cane now, but she still suffers from migraines, nightmares, and seeing Zhu’s ghost everywhere she goes. The novella The Joy of Fishes follows her through the day on which these threads begin to unravel.
