From the Publisher:
Fiction. Daniel King's short story collection cycles through the shadowy landscapes of death, gnarled relationships, the slippery side of human nature, even the contemporary lure of cosmetic surgery pushed to a surprising extreme. Philosophically pointed with a surreal bite, the characters of these stories wrestle with existence and each other as profound questions scatter them. King's stories have been widely published and praised in Australia and overseas, and this compilation was Highly Commended in the 2010 Interactive Publications Picks Award for Best Fiction.
