The Formal Logic of Emotion: Short Stories

What happens when logic is pushed to its limits? Is it possible to impose some kind of order on the confusion of human experience? When the very real chaos of life is revealed to the characters in these stories, whether through love, loss or death, they are forced to seek meaning, to look for order in their universe. And sometimes they think they have found it.rnrnThe people in these stories are gripped by fear, jealousy, grief, shame and, worse, resignation. Mirolla loves his people, not when they are at their winning best, but when they are vulnerable, damaged, loveless. The author’s humor illuminates the landscape as he follows his characters in their search for meaning. The characters journey through an interior universe on a magical, sometimes fabulous quest, governed by an unknown logic.
