Overview


FALLING FLOWERPOTS, SLIPPERY SOCKS, THE FATAL TOOTHPICK . . . ACCIDENTS HAPPEN.

"You can't be too careful." It's the last true maxim for a world that began with a random Big Bang and whose only certainty is accident. If you don't believe it, consider what happened to faith-healer Alan N., who died after tripping over his healing stool. Or Mrs. B., drowned while trying to save the goldfish in her frozen pond. Collected here are dozens of reminders of fate's unfathomable purpose-glimpses of the wonderful and terrifying human comedy, each revealing an unexpected truth about our existence.
