Fiction. Lynn Jeffress's collection of short stories in THE DALI CODE & OTHER PARIS STORIES is not the usual view of Paris. Salvador Dali, alive and mysterious in Paris, controls the weather from his Montmartre museum; a dwarf lover and his American consort star in a Paris elder porn film; an American house husband, trapped in Paris, escapes to a second life in his privately owned virtual L.A. nightclub; Gertrude Stein's Paris apartment at 27 rue de Fleurus becomes the site of a modern day haunting. Postcard Paris is invisible in these stories, but each bizarre and often comic tale mirrors something exquisitely surreal that is absolutely worth knowing. Or not.
