True Surrealism by Christopher Klim
"Short stories can be frustrating because when they are compelling like many in this collection are, I want to learn more about the characters. On the other hand, I am grateful when a short story's topic leaves one feeling uncomfortable--not because i" Read more of this review »
True Surrealism by Christopher Klim
"This is an excellent, entertaining, and educational book. I’m an award winning novelist in a (very) different genre and I was fascinated by the diverse, rich vignettes in this book.

True Surrealism by Christopher Klim
“The smell of grease in the Horseshoe Diner was strong, like the residuals of every meal that had ever been cooked over its open griddle. I lingered in a corner booth near the window, speaking to my wife Ava on the cell phone. With as much free time as a corpse, I pondered past mistakes, but I kept the call short before she asked too many questions and revived the dying thoughts in my mind. A man was a sharp and useful tool, I thought, as long as he never paused to consider it.”

True Surrealism by Christopher Klim
“I had built a life where nothing failed expectations—bills were paid, heaters kept heating, roofs never leaked. We could be framed and shot by the Good Housekeeping paparazzi, and they would never catch a brick out of place, a shrub overgrown, or our boys in shoes or pants a half size too small. Our life was perfect, until I ruined everything.”
