What is this? A rectangular record? Don't be silly. It's a book! It's a collection of short stories that draw you in through the characters and their efforts to make the best of their situation. It's funny and dark yet endearing, with a huge range of characters and situations. A perfect beach read, in my opinion.
Jonathan was one of the original founders of Featherproof (the publisher of this volume) and they've continued to publish quality fiction and non fiction alike. We carry many of their titles (most recently, Jessica Hopper's collection of rock music reviews).
