Description

In these short fictions, Gary Barwin works his surreal magic again: a businessman's heart phones him from the twentieth floor; a man sleeps with the tooth fairy; someone orders an inflatable T.S. Eliot from an infomercial. This is Barwin at his best? funny, elegant, and scintillating: a chicken suit for the soul.
