Like tales from the Old Testament, these stories are mean, rampant with sex, violence, and death. All are figments of an active, if not fertile, imagination, and brevity may be their greatest charm. They are fictions through and through. The drawings scattered throughout this volume are not illustrations, but live in the same place the sketchbooks where Dunlap first wrote the stories, forgot them, then found them again.
