Description
There's something unsettling about the stories in this book, something almost dangerous, while also being delightful. The characters are all unsteady on their feet in one way or another; they all yearn for connection and betterment, though each in very different ways, but they are often tripped up by their own baser impulses and existential insecurities. In this book, the grotesque and the outrageous are approached with tenderness and compassion. The flesh is weak; the timber is crooked; people are cruel to each other, and stupid, and hurtful - but beauty comes from strange sources.--adapted from publisher's description.
