Here Among Strangers

In Serena Crawford's Here Among Strangers, travelers find and lose themselves in unexpected places. In "My Brother's House," a woman who spends years adrift in India looks to her brother for answers as he leads a duck home from a city park. A mother lives as a hoarder in "Chinatown," while her daughter owns nothing, hoping to find refuge in a life of deprivation.

Crawford's characters teeter on the edge of sanity as they reconcile who they were with who they have become, confronting their truest selves in the most unfamiliar places. Emotional integrity runs deep in these dark and compelling stories that chronicle what it is to feel alien at home amidst the heartbreak of everyday life.
