From the Publisher



Willing to take a risk? These are
risky tales that celebrate the fragile, stubborn human animal: no matter what
shape he takes, relationships he forms--the color of his mind. He is on
contradictory flights towards love (wherever he may find it), confrontations
with loss, and his search for home. He must also be packed for sudden stopovers
in North Africa or "Big Easy" to check out the
scenes there.



Don't expect consistency. These
stories leap like fleas from slapstick-farce in "The Five Dancing
Brothers" through horror in "Neighboring" and "The
Rats," past a Saroyanesque caper ("No
Sabbaticals in Tinseltown") and gay-world hustle
("Close Shave.") to end in the dream-reality of "House of
Children." You will meet some unusual folks: Big Tex from Peoria,
Branka the Gypsy, the Brainert
Boys, the Can Man, and Azzi's Wife. Maybe they will
remind you of someone--maybe you.
