Wonderland

"I didn't know how much there was to want in the world until I saw Sheena, and then I wanted it all." These twelve short-short stories, illustrated by collage artist Stephen Knezovich, are as dark and absurd as they are poignant, playful, and true, examining men and women, love and loss, donkeys and goats, and murder, carnivals, and whiskey bosoms. "Nobody deserves love. Or everyone does. It comes and it goes of its own free will. Like fever. Like flood. Like the greatest thing you're ever gonna lose. And once it's gone, it's gone for good."
