Abstract:

"These sixteen stories depict individuals at turning points in their lives, moments that are often uncanny but always profoundly human. Whether his story features a taxidermist who ends up making an exhibit of himself, a group of sex-crazed executives in Indonesia, or a dictator holding a surgeon's family hostage to the outcome of a risky operation, Faber creates his characters with exquisite empathy. The terminally alienated live out their lives in "The Safehouse," forsaking all contact with the outside world, their stories and diagnoses written like endless ads on their T-shirts. In "The Eyes of the Soul," a woman purchases perpetual televised beauty to replace the derelict view from her suburban picture window. In the title story, a man experiences a distilled moment of perfect happiness with his rebellious teenage son."--Jacket.
