Sacred Misfits

“Visitations, hallucinations and redemptions figure large in the emotional events of the lives of the characters in Mark Blickley’s new short fiction collection, Sacred Misfits, where we witness souls seeking relief and transformation in something or someone outside of themselves. They may take their first steps toward it in spite of madness, or because of it, against their better judgement, or against the strictures of social convention—yet the solutions arrived by these marvelously original, tenderly examined souls—whether they’re looking for a miracle, relief from loneliness, or Marlon Brando have a bit of real magic to them that leave an indelible impression on the reader as well.”—Lucia Nevai
