"Jeffrey Ford is one of the few writers who uses wonder instead of ink in his pen....A rare and wonderful talent." --Jonathan Carroll, author of The Wooden Sea
Eclectic is certainly an adjective that can be used to describe the work of the phenomenal Jeffrey Ford--along with imaginative, provocative, mesmerizing, and brilliant. His powerful dark fantasy, The Physiognomy, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year; his novel, The Girl in the Glass, won the Edgar(R) Award, mystery and crime fiction's most prestigious prize. Crackpot Palace is Ford's fourth superb collection of short fiction, and in it, his prodigious talent shines as brightly as ever. Here are twenty tales both strange and wonderful, filled with mad scientists, vampires, lost souls, and Native American secrets, from an author who has been glowingly compared to Kafka, Dante, and Caleb Carr (The Alienist).

Описание: Winner of the 1998 World Fantasy Award, a prestigious novel of literary fantasy and disturbing imagination. The nightmare metropolis called the Well-Built City exists because a satanic genius Drachton Below, the Master, wished it so. And few within its confines hold the power of Physiognomist Cley. With scalpels, calipers and the other instruments of his science, Cley can divine good and evil, determine character and intelligence, uncover dark secrets, and foretell a person's destiny. But now the Master has sent the great physiognomist out of the City on a seemingly trivial assignment in the rural hinterland where, removed from Below's omnipresent scrutiny, even the most loyal servant of logic can fall prey to seductions of the flesh and spirit. And in this unfamiliar place, possessing terrors uniquely its own, await stark revelations that could shatter Cley's perceptions of himself, his profession, and his ordered world.

The Great Depression has bound a nation in despair -- and only a privileged few have risen above it: the exorbitantly wealthy ... and the hucksters who feed upon them. Diego, a seventeen-year-old illegal Mexican immigrant, owes his salvation to master grifter Thomas Schell. Together with Schell's gruff and powerful partner, they sail comfortably through hard times, scamming New York's grieving rich with elaborate, ingeniously staged seances -- until an impossible occurrence changes everything.
While "communing with spirits," Schell sees an image of a young girl in a pane of glass, silently entreating the con man for help. Though well aware that his otherworldly "powers" are a sham, Schell inexplicably offers his services to help find the lost child -- drawing Diego along with him into a tangled maze of deadly secrets and terrible experimentation.
At once a hypnotically compelling mystery and a stunningly evocative portrait of Depression-era New York, The Girl in the Glass is a masterly literary adventure from a writer of exemplary vision and skill."
