Having read of real life situations regarding body dysmorphia I was intrigued to read this short story and read it online. The tale is told from the narrator's perspective and describes how his hatred for his left leg affect him and his family life.
Having read that Alex Gambino writes comic books and science fiction, I had hopes of an element of either surfacing in the story but instead it was a well-written story of how a man deals with an unlikely feeling and how others (wife/professionals) respond.
It was a little 'real' for me as I tend to prefer a little 'other' in my reading rather than the real world but I would recommend it to others who have a few minutes to spare .. ie everyone, unless you do not deal well with blood.
