Summary (From the publisher):

Butler finds inspiration in the unlikeliest of places, a dozen tabloid headlines that, in his hands, become titles for first-person vignettes. Rather than merely capitalize on the inherent absurdity of the headlines, as one might expect, Butler generates throughout a surprisingly compelling mix of fantasy and pathos.
