In the short stories of In the Call Center at the Navel of the World, life's daily routines play out in universes almost like our own. An author steals stories from the dead, a teenager argues with God inside a whale, narrative clichés take over the lives of young urbanites, and the Oracle of Delphi negotiates 2500 years of toxic office culture. At turns absurd and philosophical, lyrical and strange, these stories explore the reality of the human condition by starting somewhere just slightly unreal.
