1. The Handler and His Narrative

3. No right to argue
“They said 9/11 was the death of satire. Adorno said there’d be no poetry after the holocaust…”
4. Matthew won’t fit
“It was an event he would rather have forgotten.The little things in life kept drawing him back. The smell of freshly manicured grass; a trivial, throw away line in conversation; a puppy licking his face..”

A very clever and poignant story about a boy who loses his mother to cancer.
“She took the treatment like a soldier..”
7. The Stargazers
“No lampposts were located near the observatory…I only learned this years later, when I was no longer living at home or afraid of the dark…”
