About Book

A divorced mother in Florida reflects on the life that is slipping away from her. A young zoologist sees the world from the business end of his zebras. A writer, marooned in a watery dystopia and charged with entertaining an unruly mob, pays the consequences for his (in)sensitive choice of material. And Pythagoras explains just what exactly was his problem with triangles.
