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.
