And All the Dead Lie Down
By Harrison David Rivers

When an unexpected phone call upsets Alvin and Foss’ usual Saturday routine, the couple must navigate a minefield of long suppressed resentments, past histories, and hurt feelings. And All the Dead Lie Down is a portrait of a sero-discordant couple at a crossroads, a couple pondering the questions: Is love enough to sustain a relationship? And is it worth the risk?
