About this title

Synopsis:

An anthology of stories by the author of James the Engineer interweaves social concern with humor and realism in tales of a hardware store owner made invisible by lightning, a woman cut in two by a saw, and a late night bull session involving three Vermont men on the edge of middle age.

Review:

"Anything is possible," Eugene tells Ralphie. Seconds later Ralphie is struck by lightning. And what about the woman at a bank standing in a line that never seems to move? Turns out she's actually in the midst of a shoot for a television commercial. The stories in this collection by poet and writer Chuck Wachtel, author of The Gates and Joe the Engineer, are rife with the black humor of characters who can't clearly distinguish between life in the real world and life on television and in the movies and whose experiences almost never provides the clear-cut lessons they hope for.
