Travel. Books. Read. Consume. And today that which has been consumed is Museum of the Weird from the Amelia Gray, a collection of stories where men marry paring knives, wild javelinas attempt to defuse hostage situations, women consume their own hair during times of stress and the tortoise visits the hare as he recuperates in the hospital, a collection full of weirdness and richness and flights of imagination, that still kept returning to a theme as classic as any, how do we connect, or more accurately, how do damaged people make connections with one another, and ultimately themselves, how does this work, can it work and what are we to do if it doesn't?
