Here are seventy-two short stories that seem to energize a reader and challenge her or him to think new ways. They are little incidents that pop open surprises. One reads more than once here: This will either heal you or make you go insane. The flyleaf speaks of the whole work as a fable. Author's Brief Introduction speaks of distracting your thinking mind through the telling of fables (xi). The experience induces a kind of childlike trance. Self-help comes to the fable world! I read the first four and am not yet transformed.
