These stories are at right angles to things usual and familiar. What would happen if rainbows suddenly disappeared? How might the fallen angel tell the story of Adam and Eve? A walk in beautiful mountain country as a thing piercing and bleak beyond measure. A young terrorist dreams the impossible dream, and a young Harvard professor finds his weekend strangely frustrated and what comes of it. The reader will return from these and other stories to find his own world richer, stranger and more beautiful.
