these stories are surreal, hilarious and beautiful. most of the stories are only a few pages so it's a great subway read. the sort of make-believe element might be off-putting to some people, and i agree that it can be frustrating to be introduced to characters in such strange situations with no explanations of what got them there. but the absurdity, i think, allows the the author to isolate these very specific aspects of human emotion. even if it is literally impossible to relate to the circumstances, the feelings involved are all very familiar.
