About this product
- DescriptionZombies, clowns, prophets, and prostitutes infuse the pages of absurdist and fiction writer Franco D'Rivera's collection of short stories. In this second and concluding volume, he brings us face to face with elements as odd as they are familiar: fear, loss, love, and gain. D'Rivera bends the spheres of reality, often with a kind of endearing and deformed sentimentality, in prose as poignant as it is incisive. A man finds himself in love with a world that is terrified of him. A woman in the midst of an uphill struggle for personal freedom is locked in the treacherous nightmare of an entrapping cycle of vice and cruelty. A clown and middle aged prostitute share a charming, yet darkly humorous encounter. It is these sorts of tales D'Rivera exposes and studies in his quest to find the ultimate truth. This compendium provides an ode to the resilience and the better parts of the human spirit. In a crystalline style that weaves through these resonant tales of friendship, love, beauty, and terror, D'Rivera plunges head-first into the seemingly unlikely, but ultimately true. Open your mind to the possibilities with In Search of the Bluebird.
