The Price of the Ride
Celebrating with deceptive economy and merciless wit the perils of our journey through life, Thomas Farber's "compressions, repercussions, tarts & tales" reverberate as they evoke French epigrams, Zen koans, and the wry wisdoms of country music. Unflinching, these very short stories insist on the saving grace of language and (gallows) humor, whatever the price of the ride.
“His prose is as spare and specifying as black and white photography.”
“...moving and arresting at the same time. ”
“...lifts the spirit with its profound understanding...Each chapter is...almost a parable.”
