BeschreibungA new volume of fourteen short stories from the author of Town Smokes and The Wrecking Yard. This new collection bristles with portraits of the grotesque, the disconsolate, the cruel and the lonely, and all of them heading to those singular incidents in which we find recognition, epiphany and, sometimes, compassion.
