Unintended Consequences is the 4th installment in Fondation's "L.A. Stories" series. This new collection reveals with precision the way life can tangle good intentions and trip up even the most sure-footed pedestrians. These are compact city fables delivering an anti-moral, a humbling reminder to judge not. The book includes over 40 illustration by artist Kate Ruth. "Fondation's fiction is so far past noir that it's almost surreal. What's horrifying is that it's not surreal; it's real. Fondation is the author of three books of fiction...and each of these books is a small masterpiece..." -Transfuge (France)
