Who doesn't read their daily horoscope, searching for guidance about what's to come, how to live? Fortune-telling, sex, death, love, ordinary and special days, time passing, humor making it all bearable—these are the repeated gestures running through The Days, a kind of absurdist guidebook made up of ninety unconventional very short stories collected in three tight sections. This is fiction that thinks, stories told with trademark humor and acerbic wit. M.A.C. Farrant previous title in this series of very short fiction, The World Afloat: Miniatures, won the City of Victoria Book Butler Book Prize for 2014.
