this is a collection of very short stories. i really like some, but maybe not all in one sitting- best to just dip into it when the mood for fragments of comedy or drama hits you. this is a long collection, actually a collection of seven collections. not necessarily narrative, often opinion and objection, partly postmodern pieces, query questionable or quixotic renderings of realistic, or simplified, scenes and sequences, of sometimes super short stories- say sentences- sometimes, self-conscious, talky texts…. and then it stops. or something like that.
