About the Book
A thirty-five year old man born with no heart remembers a night from many years ago. In the company of a woman who enjoys green pepper pizza, he attempts to solve the mystery of his missing heart. She, too, was born with something missing. The two New Yorkers share a tender moment together and discuss the evolution of human consciousness, language, and the primacy of metaphor before yielding to the flow of time. Things change, but the man finds that the persistence of memory holds fast in an erratic, unsentimental world. The city is mad with fantasy and missed connections; and yet, sometimes, we can touch the mirage and keep a piece of it for a rainy day.
