Back cover copy

The fables and fantasies in Snowman Snowman, 'written in a torrential poetic prose' (The New York Times), read like dreams, nightmares, and fairy tales, and are often imbued with a sense of moral consciousness. There is tale of two sheep engaged in conversation en route to the slaughterhouse. In 'Solutions, ' a man cuts off his body to free his mind.
