Yes, Elevator Stories is about elevators, but this is a book that surprises even itself. Everything that had been previously conceived regarding what a book about elevators would be about is smashed to pieces. The idea of a book about elevators seems like a bad idea, but what if it isn't? What if, suddenly, elevator books became big? Here is a book where someone steps on an elevator and thinks about a world and ideas that surpass the ordinary, while still only thinking about elevators. Maybe elevators could represent life in some sort of metaphorical way that just isn't as simple as life goes up and down and stops at different floors on the way. Once you open it up and start reading, all of the author's idiosyncrasies, and, at times, accidentally brilliant silly nuances and split personalities kick in, and as unbelievable as it may sound, Elevator Stories ends up being a great ride, an absurd, amusing and nihilistically heartwarming one at that. If you are only ever going to read one book about elevators in your life then this should be the book you read.
