Excavations from a Blue Room is a collection of three stories that were written over a twenty year period. True to archaeological form, the first is the most recent. Entitled The Twelve Days of... More > Christmas, it is somewhat of anti-love song, and involves two tortured teens who have a serious communication break-down. The second story, Some Random Thoughts on Death and Dying needs no further introduction; the title says it all. The final offering, A Society of Strangers, is perhaps the sweetest of the lot. In it, a middle aged woman brakes for a good looking hitch-hiker and ends up on a wild romantic tangent that pushes her views on the nature of reality itself. Bundled together, the stories make a tight and unusual package. It was as if they were waiting for each other through the decades for the time when they could be joined together. All it took was digging up the bones and presenting them under the same roof. Let’s just call it Exhibit A for short.< Less
