In this volume of unique stories, Joyce plows the same field as his first book - the rubble of the American Dream, and uncovers tales of magic, realism and yearning.

From his hilarious account of a love affair between members of the "senior set" (Mrs. Bowles Lover) to the frankly mystical account of how his grandfather was chewed up piece by piece in a steel mill (My Grandfather's Bones), Joyce writes in a way that is unclassifiable. It is even possible to find the ghost of Kafka haunting the title story.

But it is clear that Joyce is committed to his message.
