Publisher's Summary

Short stories about sexual encounters, the energies that conspire to create them, and the energies that are created in their wake. Prose that explores our human endeavors to love. The Odd Purgatory is like no other collection of erotic short fiction.
Sometimes the most salient moments in our erotic explorations take no more to delineate than a paragraph or two. At other times, the arc of a traditional story structure is needed. In either case, the collection is more about "being" as opposed to "doing", and about the space between the words.
With original music by Jeff Evans.

An unexpected pleasure

You know, I did not expect to enjoy this piece of art as much as I did. Who knew this author, actor, playwright was so freaking talented? Thank you for sharing your personal perception, Mr. Cobb.

Painting with Words; a Peek into Other's Lives

Would you listen to The Odd Purgatory of My Personal Perception again? Why?

The best stories move you in to the lives of their characters. In this collection, the author has gone beyond and draws you in to their most intimate thoughts and experiences. Touches of lightness counterbalance the difficulties and challenges of love, loss, lust and being human. These stories are more little paintings of the lives and moments that could be ours or someone we've known.

What does Keith Hamilton Cobb bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

These character portraits and peeks into personal lives have an extra flavor added by the warmth and variances of the storyteller's voice.

If you could take any character from The Odd Purgatory of My Personal Perception out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I think it would be he would take me to dinner. Or buy me a drink. Reuben, the 'strong, nearly-silent type' bartender in "Kathryn Tells Her Soon-To-Be Ex-Lover a Thing or Two," is an intriguing side note in the story. And yet this character is the truth teller, gatekeeper and protector. How could you not be drawn to Rueben? Or maybe it's just me.
