THE PARALLAX GROOVE
michael loughrey, author
Slip inside The Parallax Groove and revel in fiction free from the straightjacket of realism. Previously published in noteworthy literary magazines, these fourteen short stories are a mesmerizing extravaganza of phantasmagorical fables in which the recognisably realistic is infused with the inexplicable and the unexpected, and deconstructivism subverts the familiar order of perception into exquisite disarray. Singular, surreal, intense, illuminating, incandescent, jocular, offbeat, risqué and satirical The Parallax Groove is an exhilarating odyssey for freethinkers and nonconformists who eschew the Disneyfication of literature. More than thirty short stories by Michael Loughrey have been published in noteworthy literary magazines and anthologies in the U.S.A. and in Europe.
