A FAILED MARRIAGE PROPOSAL SENDS A MAN OFF THE DEEP END,

WHERE HE FORMS AN UNLIKELY BOND... WITH A LOBSTER

We all know that men and women deal with the loss of love totally differently...but turning to a lobster for comfort and bonding? I bet that's one you've never heard before. A dog, a cat – yes – but a lobster?

Introducing Dax Santi – a local San Francisco artist and writer who took his break up and created a story about bonding and friendship – with a crustacean. Think "The Little Mermaid" for adults. A love story (written by a man) without the fluff, Pinching Lobsters is a more humorous and sarcastic take on how a broken heart can lead to making poor decisions.
