The Dream King
With exceptional power, Robinson exposes both the gravity and levity of relationships â€” formed in duty, in fear, in need â€” and the subtle ways we attempt to escape their persistent pull. At turns humourous, chilling and tender, Robinsonâ€™s fiction displays a versatility in tone and subject that mirrors the stories of our lives, real or imagined, domestic or exotic. His writing elevates the "What If?" to new imaginary heights.
