Grey is a baby. Grey is a bad date. Grey battles a tornado, flies past giant monkeys, and pauses to watch an old woman with her lists.
Judy MacDonald is a modern-day Jane Bowles, and from her comes this startling collection of stories called Grey.
These stories toy with fact and fiction, autobiography and invention, memory and make believe. Grey proves that a misunderstood color can be far from dull. Read about a girl falling in love with a giraffe. Learn about one young boy's favorite breastfeeding scenarios. Observe several kinds of relationships. Join the author for an afterlife visit with Stanley Kubrick.
Grey--with delicious and McSweeney-esque observation, sharp dialogue, colorful characters--ages well.
