THE MAN WHO WALKED ON AIR
& Other Tales of Innocence
by Alain Arias-Misson
A major collection by a master of literary mischief. These fifteen "tales of innocence" are erotic, absurd, poetic, mysterious and, often, hilarious.
"The title story of Arias-Misson's The Man Who Walked on Air is emblematic of the fiction collection. Ruminative, cultivated, formally venturesome, smoothly (but not slickly) written, and erotic—a nuanced eroticism that takes deliciously improbable turns. A daring collection in its way, yet always engaging." --Harold Jaffe
"Augustus, Alain Arias-Misson's alter ego in the book, levitates when he has an erection. Arias-Misson levitates when he writes. Take the hand he offers you. He will lead you above the coarseness and banality of much of contemporary writing to a delightfully innocent world of erotic fantasies." --Yuriy Tarnawsky, author of Short Tails
