Collecting a decade's worth of stories by acclaimed author David Leo Rice, Drifter is a wild trip through the occult and surreal undercurrents of contemporary life. Ever in pursuit of illumination and unholy opportunity, the characters in these stories roam from blighted Western settlements to eerie New England circuses, from the backwoods of Austria to the remotest reaches of Japan, and from seedy Caribbean islands to the shadow of the Swiss Alps.
Blessed and cursed with the freedom to transgress all boundaries-between waking and dreaming, home and exile, even life and death-Rice's Drifters operate in the shadows of our world, revealing how frayed the fabric of reality has become.
David Leo Rice is the author of 'A Room in Dodge City' (Alternating Current, 2017), 'Angel House' (Kernpunkt, 2019) a Dennis Cooper 'Book of the Year' and 'The PornME Trilogy' (The Opiate Books, 2020). His short fiction has been been published in Hobart, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, DIAGRAM and The Rupture, among many other venues.
