For instance, in "the albino inside you" written in second person , the "you" figure is sure that he has seen a white-colored apparition flit by, and he convinces himself that the apparition, when it again appears, will take the form of a "tall and heavy" albino man who will be waiting for him in the bathroom. He obsesses on the idea, though the albino is never there. Much of the story is set in Vienna, there is a young psychiatrist character, and individual dreams are both described in detail and analyzed, suggesting that much of what "you" are experiencing could indeed be part of a diseased Freudian dreamscape, or else a symptom of madness.
And what to make of the fact that there is a character named Frau Braun, not to mention that "you" is fairly certain he has glimpsed an angel's "right wing"? The albino is not the only apparition-perceived or otherwise-to appear in the collection.

The first hint of this comes when a man wearing black looks straight through him at a coffee shop.

So it's not I who stands in front of the mirror but my father, that is I am the father and not the son!
