From Library Journal: These tales, some for adults and others for children, pit conventional, legalistic mentalities against the forces of chaos and the terror of mortality, depicting brief moments of epiphany that shatter familiar worlds. We have a callow college student's encounter with his dying grandfather; a precision engineer who succumbs to a brain tumor; a straight-laced town where growing lilacs is outlawed (too "messy") that is suddenly confronted by a prophet in the guise of a hobo. All the tales are masterfully executed and emotionally powerful, without a trace of dogma or intellectualization. EC
