"A kindly couple adopted a ruin."

"There was a man with gardens for feet."

"Two bison came into the bar."

The accompanying photographs enhance the isolation and loneliness, tossing the surreal down familiar streets. A wondrous winter read.

Because looking at and being amid lonely places and feelings of loneliness makes the lonely somehow feel less lonely, five stars. I feel like maternity wards should issue this book to new parents.
