Stories about the lives we lead. And the lives we wish we led.
How much of your life is fantasy? That is the question the offbeat characters in this collection seek to answer. From the fabrications of the misguided autobiographer in the title story to the unusual encounter of the narrator in “The Last Chance Texaco,” these are people slowly learning the truth about the world. They are discovering that the line between fantasy and reality is as thin as a white lie, and that reality cant be altered because we say so.
In stories that are both humorous and heartbreaking, Kun reveals the hidden side of human existence and shows us that the difference between what is perceived and what is real is often more significant than wed like to admit.
