Summary In Cities in the Sea, Maura Stanton taps into the mysterious force of the fairy tale, with its fantastic images and magical narrative patterns. Her stories blur the boundaries between fairy tale and verit+, and comment on the art of storytelling. A range of characters -- from a business man to a pianist, from a county coroner to a hardware store clerk, from a Greek immigrant to a Danish artist -- come to discover that the past is a ruined kingdom, lost forever, but still a place to visit in wish, dream, and memory. Throughout her stories, Stanton attempts to wrest a deeper pattern, full of hum.
