Description

Gold drops from the sky into the hands of a lazy beachcomber. A dog catcher falls dangerously in love with an animal-rights extremist. A fly precipitates the worst catastrophe in human history. A brainless nonperson goes missing and embarks on an impossibly rich life. An ego-driven businessman courts disaster by seeking revenge for old hurts. And on the eve of the Apocalypse, four horse-like characters try to cross a Los Angeles under martial law. *** Raz Elmaleh's writing has been described as 'modern noir', or suspense-drama with a touch of fun. It's humorous, hilarious to some, disturbing to others, and always with a twist. *** The stories in this collection span many flavors, from realistic to bizarre, from minimalist to expansive, and from wryly optimistic to darkly foreboding. Pick any story and step into a reality almost like this one. Well, almost. *** ..".simultaneously funny and tragic. A rare and good thing! Would I read Raz Elmaleh's stories if I didn't know him personally? Absolutely." - Joshua Samuel Brownshow more
