With an eclectic mix of plots and eccentric characters, the short stories of this collection make it possible to both fall in love with Julia, an adolescent guerrilla, and witness Robin wax philosophic with Batman on regret and loss. Paul Hong unloads animals, superheroes, Korean children, and a Native elder onto the landscape of Toronto with an ample store of his characteristic, and unexpected, style. The stories use a blend of hearsay, folklore, and opaque traditions to examine the everyday mysteries and the magic buried within the mundane.
