Fore Play: Or the Art of the Fugue- Chuck, a would-be Don Juan, goes through three rounds of seduction with three different women on a miniature-golf course.
Mere Mortals- Eavesdrops on a lunch hour on a girder fifty stories over the street, as three construction workers share increasingly amazing secrets of their past.
Babel’s in Arms- Two blue-collar Mesopotamian construction workers are handed a provocative task: Build the Tower of Babel—or else. How many stones does it take to get to heaven, anyway?
