A very short book containing 5 stories. I'm still not sure what they all had in common. Each was very different than the other. At this point of reflection I can't even say I had a favourite. The story of the cat Charlie was intriguing but still very odd. The first story about the found camera and the photos that were printed from the film would have been a different tale of it was written recently. Am I glad I read it? I'm still not sure.
