Book Launch: Craig Davidson presents Cascade: Stories
In conversation with Max Loskutoff
Best-selling author of The Saturday Night Ghost Club Craig Davidson joins Greenlight (virtually!) to celebrate the launch of his first collection of short stories, Cascade. Set in the Niagara Falls of Davidson’s imagination—known as "Cataract City"—the six brilliant, cinematic stories of Cascade shine a shimmering light on this slightly seedy, slightly magical, slightly haunted place, rendering the complexity of familial relationships through unforgettable characters and in steel-tipped prose, psychological perspicacity, and endearing humor. Davidson will be joined for a reading and conversation by an interviewer to be announced!

From the best-selling author of The Saturday Night Ghost Club comes this collection of seven brilliantly cinematic short stories.
Set in the Niagara Falls of Craig Davidson’s imagination—known as "Cataract City"—the superb stories of Cascade shine a shimmering light on this slightly seedy, slightly magical, slightly haunted place.
As a child in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley, Ruthie Fear sees an apparition: a strange, headless creature near a canyon creek. Its presence haunts her throughout her youth. Raised in a trailer by her stubborn, bowhunting father, Ruthie develops a powerful connection with the natural world but struggles to find her place in a society shaped by men. Development, gun violence, and her father’s vendettas threaten her mountain home. As she comes of age, her small community begins to fracture in the face of class tension and encroaching natural disaster, and the creature she saw long ago reappears as a portent of the valley’s final reckoning.
