A student's suicide note is not what it seems. A high-school football rivalry turns absurd — and deadly. A much-loved car seems to have been a different animal all along. A pair of twins aren't twins at all — or even related. A man finds his own yellow birth announcement inside a bureau bought at auction. 

Set in a small American town, told in a conversational style, Pieces for the Left Hand is a collection of one hundred anecdotes, none much longer than a page or two. These deceptively straightforward tales nevertheless shock and maze through uncanny coincidence, tragic misunderstanding, or sudden insight. 

Unposted letters, unexpected visitors, false memories — in Pieces for the Left Hand, these are the things that decide our fate. Wry and deadpan, powerful and philosophical, these addictive little fables reveal the everyday world as a strange and eerie place.
