About the book

Hall of Small Mammals

Hall of Small Mammals by Thomas Pierce book cover
ISBN 9781594634055 Riverhead / Penguin Random House

The stories in Thomas Pierce’s Hall of Small Mammals take place at the confluence of the commonplace and the cosmic, the intimate and the infinite. A fossil-hunter, a comedian, a hot- air balloon pilot, parents and children, believers and nonbelievers, the people in these stories are struggling to understand the absurdity and the magnitude of what it means to exist in a family, to exist in the world.
