About the Book

Vic Amato explores the nature of humanity through stories that are extraordinary, inspiring and even ridiculous.

In “Death by Peanut Butter,” you’ll meet Twain, a mentally challenged man with a large stock of fluffy white hair who stuffs his mouth and makes a break for it.

Tourist Dan in “Manhattan Mendicant” encounters a downtown panhandler and resents him for being able to live in NYC. But when Dan sees the World Trade Center fall on TV, he can think only of the beggar.

“Camille”, a fun-loving artist, holds back information and her true feelings. On a hot night, it all comes down on her boyfriend out on the front porch.

Enter a world filled with meaning and unforgettable characters with the sixteen stories of Incoming.

“Looking for the ideal compliment for a summer sandwich at the beach? Some say tomato, I say Amato.”

— Jim Bloch, author of The Slurpents./
