This story takes the reader on a dizzying, hilarious ride into the world of objectification and the necessary melancholy that inevitably accompanies it. Koh's words have a fluidity that makes this story, fun, funny, and innovative, all at once. Short, sweet, and utterly brilliant.

Everything you could hope for in a short story - humour, wit, narrative and an underlying message. All packed into only a few pages. A gem of a satire. More please!
