The hidden meaning of our lives often lies buried in circumstances that we fail to examine in our minds and in our hearts. "Ghosts of the American Dream" explores this preternatural sense in 19 short stories of people in the midst of the darkest revelations of their own American dreams. From the lyrical sadness of "Sky" to the nightmarish violence of "The Boxer," Buentello's poetic realism defines the ways in which the promise of life in America often becomes compromised by the strange and unforeseen influences of an unpredictable culture.
