Product description


Witty, clever, poignant Gaffney's micro fictions work as funny
routines, moving insights and illuminating character sketches
-- Time Out, 19 December 2006

sad, funny fables recalling evanescent moments of connection and
happiness. 150 words by Gaffney are more worthwhile than some novels
-- The Guardian, December 2, 2006


David Gaffney's compact, surreal tales are filled with poignancy and wit. Each story goes off like a tiny depth charge in the mind, leaving you with the trace memory of some new urban myth - comic, absurd and disturbingly true.
