These 19 surreal short stories have won prizes, delighted dinner guests and appeared in magazines worldwide. Now, for the first time, they've been collated in a high-quality, easy-to-carry, read-on-the-tram book.
Imagine Day involves (among many other things) shoplifters, lethal clothing, serial killer bus drivers, malfunctioning breakfast dispensers, revelations of the afterlife, an ambitious corporate faerie and a vicious flatulent cat. Distinctive and highly creative, Imagine Day is a revelation and celebration of Paul Hassing's fine prose and rarefied perspective. His clever colloquialisms and occasional profanities meld into a collection of bizarre tales that yet expose the world as it really is. You'll roll around laughing, think you're crazy, think he's crazy ... but always be provoked into deeper understandings. This first edition, limited to just 200 copies, is signed by the author. Many of these stories are based in Paul's home town of Melbourne, Australia and on actual events. See if you can guess where fiction becomes stranger than truth!
