"This beautiful, complex debut collection assembles some of Nebula winner Pinsker's best stories into a twisting journey that is by turns wild, melancholic, and unsettling." ― Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Pinsker has shot like a star across the firmament with Sooner or Later Everything Falls into the Sea.
In this collection, Pinsker weaves music, memory, technology, history, mystery, love, loss, and even multiple selves on generation ships and cruise ships, on highways and high seas, in murder houses and treehouses. They feature runaways, fiddle-playing astronauts, and retired time travelers; they are weird, wired, hopeful, haunting, and deeply human. They are often described as beautiful but Pinsker also knows that the heart wants what the heart wants and that is not always right, or easy.
The baker's dozen stories gathered here (including a new, previously unpublished story ) turn readers into travelers to the past, the future, and explorers of the weirder points of the present.
