Thank You for Being Concerned and Sensitive

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

Jim Henry's stories defy convention. There are no easy answers, no quick fixes. Although the plots vary--from a corpse returning to visit his family weeks after his burial, to the musings of a congressman grappling with the weight of history, to a wealthy family's elaborate plot to cheer their mysteriously wounded mother--all express a sense of the extraordinary in the ordinary, the absurd in the everyday.

Henry's characters are for the most part misfits, outsiders looking in on a world whose seemingly natural order is turned upside down. In a throw-away culture obsessed with sex and drugs, money and God, they struggle to connect with what is real while trying to convince themselves that anything is. And yet in the midst of their existential searching there remains always Henry's quirky sense of humor. As one character says, "Anything is possible," and in this collection anything and everything happens.
