Cardinal Numbers is a posthumous collection of short fiction by Hob Broun, written with the aid of a respirator when the author was paralyzed from the neck down. Witty and full of minimalist surprise, these stories flirt with fragment, fabulism, and collage. In "Rosella, in Stages," an old woman's experience is movingly charted through the voice of her writing in six different life stages' and in six pages, no less. "Highspeed Linear Main Street," a standout tale and an artistic credo of sorts, centers on a photographer's fixation on highway life, while the surreal "Finding Florida" features a Che Guevara who becomes struck with longing for a librarian and receives some unwelcome news from a fortune teller. Powerfully felt as well as mordantly funny, Cardinal Numbers is a freshly singular contribution to the American short story.
