“You should probably jump at any chance you get to expose yourself to the work of cabaret artist Jill Tracy, who contributes my favorite essay in Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues. It has nothing to do with music and it’s still awesome…Her tale “The Keeper of the Shop” is a sweet and sad little story about friendships, and meanings found in seemingly insignificant objects.”
