Summary "Gravity Changes is a collection of fantastical, off-beat stories that view the quotidian world through the lens of the absurd. Set in a surreal, fictional world that is populated by strange, fascinating characters -- children who defy gravity, a man who marries a light bulb, the Devil and his ex-wife -- these stories take wide steps outside of reality, finding new ways to illuminate truth. Zach Powers lives and writes in Savannah, Georgia. The co-founder of the literary arts nonprofit Seersucker Live, his promotional writing for television has won an Emmy Award, and he is currently a columnist for Savannah Morning News"-- Provided by publisher.
