Mekenzie | 2 comments It's a short book but very meaty, three different stories with the same three "personalities" in each story each having a different one play the protagonist. Story 1 When the irish first settled in America, the little boy who is a cripple is the lead. He can't stop reciting poetry for some reason, there's a factory accident of some kind. Story 2 the woman is a detective I think and finds the young boy working for a terrorist organisation and tries to "un"brainwash him. Story 3 the man is the main character as some kind of robot that was made by a specific man who he then tries to find so he can go on a spaceship with him, the woman is some kind of lizard alien.

HELP! haha thank you kindly for any assistance

When did you read it?
Or when was it published?
Children's, YA, or adult?
Remember the cover?
Author female or male?

Mekenzie | 2 comments I think it was a male author. Not children’s or YA. Small book almost three short stories but very intense, too much for YA
Think it had to be published 90’s-00’s by the “present tense” middle stories description of New York. I read it in Barcelona 2015
