Absurdity, book, 2016
Absurdity is a grown-ups picture book.
It is a collection of short stories, drawings and observations share my experience of working in the public service. Depictions relating to everyday life outside the public service are also interspersed throughout, as a counterpoint. Short stories are tied together by emotion, character or absurdity.
There are no grand events taking centre stage. There is no traditional story or plot for you to follow or escape in. There are no main characters, instead there are people who fade in and out.
Absurdity is a work about the human condition that holds a mirror to the minutia—the understated importance of everyday life. After all life takes place in the detail.
