Pieces For The Left Hand, Paperback / softback Book


A student's suicide note is not what it seems. A high-school football rivalry turns absurd - and deadly.

A much-loved cat seems to have been a different animal all along.

A pair of identical twins aren't identical at all - or even related.

A man finds his own yellowed birth announcement inside a bureau bought at auction.

Set in a small American town, told in a conversational style, Pieces for the Left Hand is a stream of a hundred anecdotes, none much longer than a page.

At once funny, bizarre, familiar and disturbing, these deceptively straightforward tales nevertheless shock and amaze through uncanny coincidence, tragic misunderstanding, strange occurrence or sudden insight.

Unposted letters, unexpected visitors, false memories - in Pieces for the Left Hand, these are the things that decide our fate.

Wry and deadpan, powerful and philosophical, these addictive little fables reveal the everyday world as a strange and eerle place.
