Overview - This mixed-genre collection of handsomely illustrated stories can be delightfully disorientating.

Overview
This mixed-genre collection of handsomely illustrated stories can be delightfully disorientating. You begin each story knowing that it can lead anywhere--to horror, to humor, or to some place in between. There is no limit to what may befall a woman driving alone through woods at night; a theologian retained by a corporation that is attempting to extend human life expectancy through physics; a pair of eight-year-old boys attending a kiddy matinee at a movie theatre in 1947; a software salesman who acquires a pair of lie detector hearing aids developed for Israeli intelligence; a married couple using a dealer's loaner robot to babysit while their nanny-droid is under repair; two cruise ship musicians on the cusp of romance when they visit the pianist's grandmother at an old farmhouse. And because all the stories explicitly or implicitly probe meaningful aspects of the human condition, you could find them thought-provoking, and may want to read them more than once. So if you enjoy short stories only when they are predictable, or if you have no time to spare for philosophical reflection or for rereading books you enjoyed, Tales from Finnegan's Wake may not be for you.
