The BookThe The Stories


The The Stories is an irreverent collection of fourteen stories brimming with dark humor and Twilight-Zonish twists. These stories dive headfirst into the shallow end. Among those carried out of the pool on a spineboard are Santa Claus, rock stars, patriarchy, comic book movies, home owners associations, hetero-normativity, and so many more.
