A thoroughly postmodern monster finds kinship in mutability and endurance. A restaurant critic meets his match in a tale of telepathic tongues. A put-upon middle-manager dreams of bloody revenge against the puerile Big Babies. A courier chases an impossible connection across a city that doesn’t exist. Seeking solace in queer lives and landscapes, these fables of loneliness, love and liminality delight in disgust, discover joy in daily junk, and create wild unexpected treasures from the most unusual of leftovers.
