When the unnamed narrator of this story meets a mysterious man in her shoe shop, he seems to be all that she’s dreamed of. But is he a potential lover, a substitute son, or something less wholesome? A comic and disturbing tale about a life gone sour, and the mystery man who could put it back on the right tracks…
