about this item
What if your perfect hermaphrodite match existed on another planet? What if you could suddenly see through people’s skin to their organs? What if you knew the exact date of your death? What if your city was filled with doppelgängers—of you? Forced to navigate these bizarre scenarios, Phillips’s characters search for solutions to the problem of how to survive in an irrational, infinitely strange world. By turns surreal, witty, and perplexing, the stories here explore the everyday indignities and surprising pleasures of living in a time and place that can feel futuristic, fantastical, and familiar all at once. Some Possible Solutions cements Phillips’s standing as a true original and a treasure.
