In the title story, a dutiful suburbanite is stunned to learn that his homeowner's association met without him and issued a complaint letter. His response, severe and necessary, re-asserts order.
A pyromaniac abandons treatment to attract a firefighter with whom she falls in love, a dying man writes his own cruel and honest eulogy, and a graveyard caretaker finds comfort in the voices of the deceased.
Determined, unstable, and quietly courageous characters face life altering situations to discover their flaws and strength. Kindness is punished and deceit rewarded in this wonderfully entertaining collection of short fiction. Michael Baird explores the gap between the human dream and the human experience.
