Secret Sidewalk by Tom Lichtenberg

Secret Sidewalk is a kind of '1001 Nights' as told by a boy to his younger brother in the hopes of getting him to sleep on one very hot night. Among the tales it contains is the legend of Beauregaard Sweet, who became invisible, but whose troubles began when he suddenly reappeared. Then everybody wanted something from him. Manny the mechanic wanted his wife. Would-be cult leader Sharad LeMaster wanted his secret. Nosy neighbor Emma Biggs wanted another shot at the TV news, and the Four Tribes wanted to send him back to wherever it was he’d gone, and all he wanted to do was eat donuts and watch reality TV. Book Two of the Secret Trilogy

About the Author

"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

You people should just read this novel yourselves and write your own review on it. I enjoyed reading this novel very much. ShelleyMA

I am a fan but this tale was not one of his better ones. It does link to another of his short stories -- some overlapping of characters and references to previous tales. Still this storyline seemed odd.

I have several of Mr. Lichtenberg's books, and this one was out of the ordinary. It is short, and even so took me the "Want" to finish it, as it didn't keep me at all entertained. I was baffeled, at where it was going the whole time, I felt more like I was sitting at a camp fire, telling stories than anything else. I still am not sure where it went in the story line. I know it's a freebie, but still in his writing capability I was not impressed with this book. I have many others, of his, but this is one of them that I would not recommend. 5 star on the people described in it. But to follow the plot 1/2 star.
