In Vertigo, an injured Olympic athlete becomes a research guinea pig in a surreal scientific experiment. In The Boy Next Door, a teenager recounts how her mother took her and fled Canada for Brazil, along with the local Catholic priest.Implacable and just a little unhinged, the stories of Cover Before Striking each move towards that moment of contact when the sparks begin to fly, when destruction and beauty seem to blur together.

With this collection, Priscila Uppal offers the literary equivalent of playing with fire.
