Shadow Play: Ten Tales from the In-between is a collection of fantastical and interconnected stories written by Asian-American writer, Sarina Dahlan.

At first glance the characters may appear unrelated: A girl living with a silent grandmother in World War II-era Bangkok, a septuagenarian writing his memoir in upstate New York, a kampong witch doctor, the residents of a rundown hotel in the Tenderloin district, lost souls in Central Park. Yet, they are all connected by a karmic web across time.

By turns unexpected, funny, heartbreaking, and horrifying, this debut collection is an excursion into the strange and the magical hidden in the mundane. A fusion of the realistic and the supernatural that explores the concept of self by those stuck in-between.
