Evening Proposal, Paperback / softback Book


Evening Proposalis a collection of eight stories about the grim and often faceless nature of urban life.

Faintly reminiscent of Franz Kafka, the stories range from a man who discovers that his job performance has no significance while taking refuge in taking care of an abandoned rabbit to a man who finally expresses his love to discover that his expression frightened him more than his fear in anticipating the event.Evening Proposalreissues the warning that the orderliness and system that civilization created in order to confront natures chaos is in fact the hell of monotony.
