Fiction. Art. Edited by Ally Harris. In METER-WIDE BUTTON, a jaded artist-in-residence roams the surface of an alien planet in the company of a team of virtual therapists provided to him through Universal Healthcare; a Midtown resident's bathroom conspires against her in her desperate quest for pleasure; a polyamorous kleptomaniac develops an obsession with organic food; and an aspiring teacher's employment at a school in the country devolves into a nightmare at the hands of an unexpected tormentor. Lillian Paige Walton's surreal, genre-bending debut responds to the absurdities of art and writing, wading through snakes and scaling tiled bathroom walls to reveal the hilarity and horror of everyday living.
