Publisher's Summary

Here is the story of Ernie Klemper, a frustrated illustrator drawing cartoons for children's magazines. He yearns for a better career with creative freedom. He wants to be remembered for his art. But as a freelancer, his job only expands to drawing cartoons for adult magazines. Then one day during happy hour at the local bar, a previous co-worker whispers the words, "postage stamps," in Ernie's ear.

Ernie hopes that a job creating postage stamps will improve his situation with women and inspire him to create timeless and memorable art that will be licked and seen by millions. Instead he finds Gurdna Shagidi, a self-assured woman with a haunting past, who pushes his feeble self-confidence to the limits. For Ernie Klemper, his short stint at creating postage stamps changes him forever.

First published by Harper's Magazine in April 2001.
