Conversations with the Living and the Dead
About the Book
Conversations with the Dead is contemporary fiction with a slight supernatural twist. Aided by his colleagues, Mary and Angelo, and supported by his wife, Mandy, Peter still finds himself nonplussed as he deals with an uncompromising administrator. Even more disturbing to Peter is a son still fighting off the demons of war. Confronted by a boss intent on firing him and a son still feeling the effects of the war in Iraq, Peter Stonehouse sits confounded in front of the TV late at night, watching reruns of zombie flicks until a late-night visitor from his childhood stirs him to action.
About the Author
Patrick Conley enjoys living with his family, teaching his students, and writing an occasional novel. His more recent works include A Cool Mist Rising: Reflections on the War of 1812; May the Better Team; Public Schools, Private Scandals; 2044; and Tales of Youth and Age. Perhaps naively, he believes that fiction is infinitely more comprehensible than life.
