Summary
"A collection of short stories from acclaimed novelist Christopher Hope. In The Garden of Bad Dreams Hope's characters strive for order despite the entropy that surrounds them: a nostalgic circus man is compelled to collect small people; an industrious monk strives to push a mountain away from his monastery; the widow of an English captain tends her rose garden wearing an old Panama hat and tiny red slippers on her bound feet; and desperate soldiers eat an entire zoo, leaving only a pale jaguar from the jungles of South America."--BOOK JACKET
