Summary, etc.: The Whole World at Once is a collection of intense stories about the experience of loss. A soldier returns home from multiple tours only to begin planting landmines in the field behind his house; kids chase a ghost story up country roads only to become one themselves; one girl copes with the anniversary of her sister's disappearance during the agricultural fair, while another girl searches for understanding after seeing the picture of a small boy washed onto a beach. Dark, strange beauties, all of the stories in The Whole World at Once follow the lives of people grappling with what it means to live in a world with death.
Subject: Loss (Psychology) > Fiction.
Genre: Short stories.
