(From the publisher):
Prosaic lives take on an enigmatic and wider meaning in these three suberb tales. They go beyond the everyday world to illuminate man's place in a strange and mysterious universe.
Earthly existence, the authors of these stories attest, is but one aspect of a wider reality. These eerie tales are indeed fascinating explorations of man's world.
