“Twenty-Five Miles To True North" is a “Children’s Book for Adults.”

The form-breaking short stories in “Twenty-Five Miles To True North" offer an original mix of absurdist humor and Borgesian surrealism, infused with the energy of the pop culture. 

The unnamed narrator is usually accompanied by a beautiful companion, who can transform into a sweet voice at will; hovering, offering advice and protection, all the while teasing the narrator.

We are launched into a landscape of bickering rabbits who warn of horrors ahead—prognosticators of doom. There is a suggestive story about a chaos machine which is also about public presentations. There is a landscape of lost things; mysterious Victorian ladies sing a song of healing enchantment; a crystallographer and his bionic pet—even a parade float in a basement. 

The beautiful, edgy images by the author illuminate the text with dazzling grace. These tantalizingly short tales voyage from satirical representations of the madness of a popularity culture to mystical journeys in the poetical space/time of consciousness. The tales in “Twenty-Five Miles To True North" affirm love in a visionary landscape.

Blessedly, these stories have no ideological axe to grind, but rather understand the resonance of stories in our lives. Stories which, in their strangeness, parallel our eccentric day to day experiences. These thirteen tales explore our sense that there is an infinity just outside our grasp, just down the rabbit hole.
