From the dust jacket- "One of the finest storytellers in this country, Davis Grubb has a special gift for the tale that is startling and bizarre. Here are a dozen of them, which range widely in mood and yet are all marked by his extraordinary imagination. They range from a savage story about the effect of radio to the tender fantastic 'The Man Who Stole the Moon'; from an account of a man deliberately and ingeniously frightened to death to the description of a small boy turning his teacher to a rabbit. There are tales of the magical world of childhood; and of murder. In many of them Davis Grubb writes about the region he has made particularly his own- the Ohio River Valley."
