ISBN-13: 9780973864526

Fall in love with Julia, an adolescent guerrilla; witness Robin wax philosophic with Batman on regret and loss.

Paul Hong unloads animals, superheros, Korean children, and a Native elder into a big city that rhymes with Doronto. Any reader is like the detective that weaves through this collection of short stories to uncover everyday mysteries. Hong’s stories are a blend of hearsay, folklore and opaque traditions leading us to the simple treasures buried beneath our feet.
