Robinson rescuing us from lifes current perfidies? These are but samples of the ironical, cynical, and metaphorical black humor contained in this tome. Its a glimpse through the diaphanous layers of the authors imagination. Its an imagination of another time from another place. Its an imagination that has been carefully molded by varying aliquots of Big Apple naivete, emergency medical mayhem, madness & mirth, and a persistent fatalistic optimism.
