Publisher's Summary

Alex Issa's thought provoking stories are difficult to classify. From post-apocalyptic fables tackling restraint in the absence of law to tales of hit man morality, his short fiction has challenged readers and delighted critics with its minimalist sensibilities and ever-present subtext. Here, two almost surreal short stories lead the listener through disturbing and somehow beautiful locations in the mind.

"Bella's Slippers"

Locked in the tower, Bella laments her fate, the decisions she made about the liquidation of her mother's estate, and the ambitions that have left her helpless on unforgiving stone with rodents and roaches her only companions.

"Big Top Slick"

A father explains to his son why running away to the circus isn't the best option in this surrealistic and vaguely philosophical exploration of society, shunning, and human nature.
