Michael Andreasen will sign The Sea Beast Takes a Lover (Dutton, $25.00). The Sea Beast Takes A Lover explores family, faith, and longing through a kaleidoscope of surreal landscapes and spellbinding characters. In "Bodies in Space," an extramarital affair is rudely interrupted by an alien abduction, while in "Blunderbuss." a third-grade class takes an ill-advised field trip to a floundering time travel institute. "Jenny" follows a reluctant caretaker's attempts to manage his kind-hearted headless sister, and in the title story, a group of sailors find their ship commandeered by an aggressively lovestruck kraken. Romping through the fantastic with bighearted ease, these stories uncover a universal yearning for connection in seldom-explored spaces, revealing that aliens can help us think about loss, that time travel is just another way to talk about guilt, and that sea monsters may have a thing or two to teach us about love.
