9780007439232: The Tiny Wife

A flamboyantly-dressed man enters a bank, and proceeds to commit a most curious robbery. Rather than demanding money or jewelry, he asks each of his thirteen victims to surrender that which they hold most valuable: a calculator, a cheap watch, photographs of children, a copy of Camus’ The Stranger, and so on.

The lives of robbery victims begin to come apart in otherworldly yet strangely fitting ways, forcing them to discover and claim that which is truly valuable to them — before it’s too late. The Tiny Wife, the latest work of contemporary wonder from best-selling and award-nominated author Andrew Kaufman, is an imaginative and inspiring display of pure storytelling.

About the Author:

Andrew Kaufman was born in the town of Wingham, Ontario. This is the same town that Alice Munro was born in, which makes him the second best writer from a town of three thousand. He attended F.E. Madill High School. He is the author of Born Weird, All My Friends Are Superheroes, The Waterproof Bible, and the short story collection Selected Business Correspondence. He, for now, lives in Toronto with his awesome wife and two kids, Phoenix and Frida.

Review:

“Clever. Brilliant. Funny. Moving.” (Cecilia Ahern, author of P.S. I Love You)

“It blew me away!” (Marie Phillips, author of Gods Behaving Badly)

“A little book with a big impact.” (The Lady)

“The best in magic realism ... heartbreaking, tender, horrifying, beautiful, and wondrous.” (Bella's Bookshelves)

“Andrew Kaufman = best kind of f#$&ing weird. This is a tripped out peach of a book.” (oneline review)
