The stories in this collection range from the absurd: a world beset by a sickness that slowly turns everyone blue; a woman who rears a child that gets older, but never ages; a wife making friends with her husband's sex-doll - to the sublime: a man reconnecting with his estranged daughter through homemade movies filmed on a non-existent camera, a woman saving a child from a train wreck.
