The stranger your mother warned you against ... an escaped lion ... a friendly game of "party hypnosis" gone wrong ... a severe infestation of cockroaches that proves nothing short of diabolic ... these are a few of the bizarre and gripping situations J. Morris deploys in this funny, unsettling, and brilliant collection. With acute, observant language and skewed imagination, Morris draws the boundary between childhood and growing up, reality and dreams, humor and pathos ... and then erases it completely. In these stories, nothing is quite as it appears - but you will remember everything.
"Sharp, funny, and original, these stories are a delight to read..." - Speer Morgan, The Missouri Review
"Morris writes with precision, with wit, with imagination, and with a fierce lucidity that he makes look effortless..." - Michael Griffith, Cincinnati Review
