Shalom Camenietzki_s short story collection details the fractal nature of the self as seen through the flaws and assets of the characters that stoically inhabit his pages. Each tale examines the rough edges of misguided obsession: an unrequited love affair with the nanny, the perils of a competitive look-a-like, the numbing indignity of going the wrong way on the corporate ladder. Fixated, let down, disappointed, enraged, and confounded by the shackles of their own consciences, Camenietzki_s characters unburden secrets and force the reader to bear witness to their “dark nights of the soul.” This is the place where the boundaries blur between religious fervour and lewd advance, money and mental illness, accident and destiny.
