On a beautiful spring morning, Serena Callaway wanted nothing more than a quiet, meditative walk along the streets of her small town. Then she found a toe, a woman's big toe, recently pedicured, lying in the street, and began to realize that normal, along with quiet and certainly meditative, just might not be where things were headed that day. Now That I'm Ready To Tell You Everything is a quirky romp through a single morning, as a group of quite ordinary people try desperately to turn average moments into nutty adventures. Praise for Now That I'm Ready to Tell You Everything: "G.K. Wuori is truly a master of the everyday Absurd, and in Now That I'm Ready to Tell You Everything, he is at his ominous, poignant and comic best." Gina Frangello, author of Slut Lullabies and My Sister's Continent.
