Barry Yourgrau describes a series of “nasty” events which incorporate realistic scenarios. Seemingly innocuous circumstances become alarming with the introduction of grotesque elements such as; goblins, witches, and evil clowns.

Immensely enjoyable: surprising, clever, ridiculous, and absurd. A non traditional approach to reading both in form and content. Reminiscent of Modern Absurdist playwrights – Albee and Stoppard.
