First Edition (first printing). The second story collection by the author of HOW TO READ AN UNWRITTEN LANGUAGE, a gallery filled with people who -- for all their strangeness -- seem deeply familiar. Fine/Fine. Signed by Graham on the title page. N° de réf. du libraire 10475
Synopsis : A collection of stories revolves around the idea that people are fueled by their secret personal worlds--their interior designs--such as the woman who builds a wire model of herself and hides it in her closet. 10,000 first printing.
Critique: The eight short stories in Interior Design, a collection by Philip Graham, author of the novel How to Read an Unwritten Language, are built on seemingly simple plots. But invariably a twist of the mind leads to unpredictable results. In "Lucky" an aging owner of a men's clothing store panics when he realizes that his suits are waiting only to be worn at funerals; in another an aspiring actress becomes a hit in a television commercial only because she plays the part so badly; in yet another a couple uses a wire figure hidden in a closet to wear the clothes the woman wore when their relationship was alive. Graham shows that reality isn't always what it seems.
