Fiction. THE LAW OF STRINGS AND OTHER STORIES is an existential yelp examining individual choices and our all-too-human response to unexpected events. Fans of George Saunders and Aimee Bender will delight in Gillis' surprising surrealist twists in the heart of painfully real emotion and interpersonal relationships. From a tightrope walker abandoning his trade to an Immovable Girl learning to levitate, THE LAW OF STRINGS explores what happens at the crossroads in our lives and how we decide what matters most in a world defined by chaos.

" T]his story collection hooked me from story one and continued to captivate to the end. Expert dialogue and movement and resolution in each piece...This is a book you could read in a sitting or two. The pace is that swift; the stories are that good." Stephen Dixon.
