This book is the author’s 3rd short story collection and contains 75 separate essays and stories about the absurdities, and hilarity, of everyday life. They are especially designed for those with short attention spans and include individual vignettes about the oddities of daily life. It has both nonsensical and serious pieces included.
Do you have enormous difficulty with your clothing? My shoes and I are constantly at odds because they regularly kidnap my socks. In my house, all kinds of conspiracies abound.
Does your cat think you’re stupid? If so, you should be concerned, and this book will tell you why. My cat insults me every day with his ‘I know better than you, idiot’ looks. So do the rabbits in the backyard. It’s hard not being liked by the house pets.
Do you find history, holidays, travel, and even fruit funny? I’ve lost count of the times that I’ve sat in my car in the middle of a traffic jam, while pondering these subjects and many others, along with odd moments too numerous to count.
And what is a moment? Here is my own description: A moment is technically ninety seconds. A minute is less than that. And a ‘New York Minute’ is the shortest measurable unit of time, with the possible exception of my own patience when someone tells me to “wait a second.”
But read this book and find out more. Let me relieve you of a small sum of your vast wealth and leave you with a feeling of exhaustion brought on by nothing more than a bit of laughter and just a hint of incredulity…..
A Vaporous Collection of Moments is an assemblage of seventy-five essays and mad rants on subjects too ridiculous to ignore.
Dominic Macchiaroli is also the author of ‘My Parakeet was an Anarchist’ and ‘Skateboarding on the Appian Way’
