  • I first discovered this author last month while browsing thru the new books at my local library, the book was on chronic pain, something I know about, and it was a short little thing with large print, so I took it out I went thru the library s catalog to see if there was anything else around in their achives which are kept in the main branch and this book was listed, so I ordered it It is a thin book of short unusual stories, often with quirky or abrupt endings.Worth a read I think.
