Fiction. Short Stories. With subjects ranging from gun-wielding therapists to drunk taxidermists, Moore’s exploration of human nature in both its humdrum and its hilarity surely reflects his work experience as a documentary filmmaker, professional modern dancer, wire service journalist, and zookeeper. His prose is sharp, his characters endearing, and his wit always on target. Moore’s other books included THE EMPORER’S VIRTUAL CLOTHES and THE ACCIDENTAL BUDDHIST.
