keluarga: to move to a new village
lunak,/em>: to search for something without finding it
mencintai: to love for the last time
Meet a guilt-ridden nurse who atones for her sins by joining her zombified patients in exile; a lone soldier standing guard on a desolate Arctic island against an invasion that may be all in his mind; a folksinger who tries to unionize Hell; and a private eye who only takes your case after you die. Visit a resettlement centre for refugees from ancient Rome; a lost country recreated by its last citizen on the Internet; and a restaurant where the owner s ghost lingers for one final party. Discover the inflationary effects of a dragon s hoard, the secret connection between Mark Twain and Frankenstein, and the magic power of blackberry jam all in this debut collection of strange, funny, and bittersweet tales by acclaimed writer Matthew Johnson.
