From the Publisher:

In this new collection of short stories, vignettes and autobiographical sketches—many previously unpublished—Charles Willeford, author of Miami Blues and The Burnt Orange Heresy creates a mosaic of the absurdities of life in the 20th century. From a malicious grandmother to prophetic depictions of the power of reality television—with wry humor and sudden shifts to violence—he seduces, amuses and repeatedly surprises you.

"Willeford's experience of his life led him to a certain attitude toward the world and his place in it, and this attitude, ironic without meanness, comic but deeply caring, informed every book he ever wrote, from his two volumes of autobiography through all the unnoticed novels." -Donald Westlake
