This collection began as stories that Storbakken would tell his children while riding on the New York Subway. They are fantastical and some of the stories are true creative genius. Others will also make you go, hmm.
I have never been on the New York Subway, but have ridden the trains in D.C., Chicago, and public buses in Columbus. I can imagine that one sees many different characters. It is these characters that help inspire the stories for this book. It is a great escape from the present and invites the readers to let all things go and enjoy these gifts to the reader.
Thanks to Speakeasy for the opportunity to review.
