When a man in a purple hat walks into the bank with a loaded gun, it’s not money he’s after but an item of sentimental value from each victim. In the days following this odd robbery, weird things start happening. A tattoo comes alive, a woman discovers she’s made of candy and our narrator’s wife starts slowly shrinking.
The Tiny Wife is a tiny book, really more of a novella but it’s a wonderful, surreal little fable. It manages to be both whimsical and macabre at the same time with an underlying message about taking your life for granted. Not only that, but it’s illustrated too, in a shadow puppet style. I must admit that it was the cover design that drew me to the book in the first place.
