I’d Rather Be At The Beach

I love short stories and this book did not disappoint me. I also liked the writing style of the author. There were no lulls in the story and that made the book flow well.

SYNOPSIS

Three interconnected short-stories set in Paris explore the issue of choice, survival and transformation. In the first story, a young man on his first business trip is waylaid by an aberrant elevator. In the pivotal tale, a young scientist re-imagines the Greek myth of Icarus and his fall to earth. In the final story, a young woman who cannot recall her own name relates the fantastical tale of a girl who can fly. [provided by the author]
