Jamey Gallagher

 “Jamey Gallagher is a major talent, with a deeply empathetic eye and a natural-born writer’s ear.”

Andre Dubus III


Animals inhabit the edges of the stories in American Animism. Some of the stories veer between realism and magical realism, but there is something at the center of each of these stories that makes them unique. A girl working in a cryptid museum, a boy in the attic of a gift shop on Mystery Hill, a vacation house in Nova Scotia where strange things happen: these are stories of transformation and becoming.
