Gaston's characteristic keen insight and wit dazzle in this new collection. Readers will see the world through the prism of unfamiliar perspectives: a bank executive whose excellent sex life might in fact be killing her, an amorous tree surgeon better attuned to the values of his "patients" than to other people, a vacationing schizophrenic, a pizza-delivery boy convinced he's witnessed magic--all struggling with the world as they see it.
This versatile collection--at times darkly playful, absurd, or shockingly real--illustrates how we can fail to understand the simplest of truths and how we are trapped by the peculiarities of our own points of view.
