Child Again

Robert Coover

200 pages

Casey returns to bat. The Pied Piper pipes again. Little Red Ridinghood is
not safe yet.

Robert Coover returns with a new collection of short fiction, reexamining
our shared narrative heritage -- myths, fairytales, and favorite childhood
stories -- unearthing the underlying hope, fear, and wonder at their core.
Simultaneously playful and systematic, satirical and empathetic, Coover uses
the stories of our past to point towards a fiction of the future.
