"Last fall I went on tour with my new book The Encyclopedia of Doris. The stories I like to read out loud are always so sad. I kep saying at every reading, "The next issue of Doris will be about how healing is possible and everything doesn't always have to hurt so bad and love is possible and sweet." This isn't exactly about that, but there are hints of it here. Each story holds a little hint." (intro) Includes instructions on how to fix a broken cassette tape and a story about organizing a Rock Camp for Girls.
