Companionship (2002)

“We have a bike-riding companion who owns a snake and is free as a bird; a man radically avoiding company (in the spirit of Thoreau’s comment, ‘I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude’); a corbie commemorating a fallen knight; a body-double following a one-step program to save her parts from non-consensual coupling; and a woman sharing loneliness with a fruitcake and a grumpy gnome.”
