Description
In an age of Internet, satellite transfers, and cellular phones, "communication" has become something of an overused buzzword. The Story of Digby and Marie, Robert Shure's look at this human drive to make contact, comprises a series of dialogues both comical and poignant; startlingly recognizable and evocatively screwy. In the title characters we encounter an Everyman and an Everywoman, at once more rooted to Earth and more lost in the stars than Griffin and Sabine. We meet Digby and Marie as they first make each other's acquaintance. Through the pages of their halting, tentative reaching for each other, we get to know two quirky characters who share an appreciation for the absurdity of the human condition - its exhilarations and let-downs, confusions and clarities. Though recognizable, their means of communication is anything but orthodox. As odd as it may seem at first, however, it soon becomes a reliable norm. The result is a delightfully readable book that grabs our attention with its offbeat way of dealing with the trials and tribulations of everday existence.
