In edgy and effervescent prose, Dreaming in Night Vision tells the true story of a poet and soldier who risk everything to save their marriage; namely, granting each other permission to fall in love with other people. Told in screams and whispers, the story presents a potent, breathtaking portrait of a family looking for a solution to the modern epidemic of quiet desperation — a solution they hope will keep their family together.
Both cautionary tale and siren song, Dreaming in Night Vision is a fearless meditation on a life less ordinary written with subtlety, imagination, and bite. The essays, excerpts, journal entries, prose and poems in this volume are rich with magical realism and wonder, whether describing acts of love or the brutality of war. Mhyana’s elegiac and wildly irreverent memoir is as multi-faceted and kaleidoscopic as the shattered love story that inspired it.
Dreaming in Night Vision holds universal appeal for readers who have ever questioned the status quo or dared to dip their toes in fairy tales.
