Taco Gnome and Other Tales by Christopher Painter

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Here are sixteen tales of lust, longing, and lousy fast food.

They are told by ghosts who are not dead, and vampires who do not consume blood; by office workers who don't know what they do, and retail customers who don't know what they're buying; puddles of oil that divine the future, and time travelers who cannot change the past.

They all take place on the same city block, in a singular collection of businesses on an uncanny stretch of street.

Modern Humorist calls Taco Gnome and Other Tales "a cross between Woody Allen and Jorge Luis Borges."

It's open 24 hours, so stop by when you have a craving.

*For (mostly) mature readers.*
