Abstract
My initial suspicions turned out to be true about this book. It has nothing to do with fables in the sense in which I am pursuing them. I find this a singularly unattractive book. It is generally first-person prose in titled sections of one to three pages. There are four chapters. This book confirms my interest in story by counter-example. Because it sounded more like a story, I tried A Movie Is for Holding Hands? (112). It proclaimed the same aggressive narcissism I found elsewhere in the book. I tried again on The Singer Who Lost Her Shape (78) and did not fare much better, though this piece is at least narrated in the third person. Play, that can yield so much in fables, does not yield much here. The best thing I can say about this book is that its distributors were my good friends at Serendipity in Berkeley.
