People Who Disappear


By Alex Leslie

An oil spill on the West Coast coincides with a loved one's death. An enigmatic young musician experiences the rise and fall of his career, as told through videos posted to YouTube.

Sometimes romantic, sometimes elegiac, Alex Leslie's coastal stories take place in ocean inlets and city streets. Haunted as much by technology as by their own ghosts, Leslie's characters face the disappearance of sanity, love, and landscape. An electric, poetic debut.
