"A robber charges into a bank with a loaded gun, but instead of taking any money he steals an item of sentimental value from each person. Once he has made his escape, strange things start to happen to the victims.
A tattoo comes to life, a husband turns into a snowman, a baby starts to shit money. And Stacey Hinterland discovers that she’s shrinking, a little every day, and there is seemingly nothing that she or her husband can do to reverse the process."
Following on from reading All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman, The Literary Boutique book club continued to read another Kaufman novel: The Tiny Wife. Like his first novella, The Tiny Wife is short, quirkier and all-out bizarre. Throughout the hardback copy, the book also displays some delightful silhouette illustrations by Tom Percival.
