Topia is a collection of surreal, off-beat, and all-too-recognizable stories that take place in worlds only slightly different from our own. Matt Tompkins' carefully wrought stories explore love, pain, disappointment, evolution, growth and decay, all with nuance and a deep sense of irony. Topia is darkly imaginative, and Tompkins' stories are as eerie as they are ordinary, as realistic as they are other-worldly. Suffice it to say: the strange worlds of Topia will live in your mind long after you've finished reading.
