Scenes from a small town.
(from The Best American Short Stories 2005)
Not so much a short story as a collection of eight, and the left hand does not figure into thing smuch. Which is all fine. This was utterly entertaining. Dark and witty, fast paced and smart. I hereby praise this one out the ass.
Read one of the eight pieces on this mysterious site. Here‘s the author’s web site. Hmm, looks like there are 100 pieces for the left hand now. And there’s an audio symbiote. And there’s going to be a movie!?
