A human and humorous tale about Hasegawa's reactions to mice: fear at their presence, horror at the prospect of trapping them. Each copy has a small plastic bag stitched to the colophon, containing mouse droppings complete with label indicating date and place of collection.
Lisa Hasegawa: "This is a true story. Most of the images are blind night drawings, drawings made each night in bed with my eyes closed, usually about something that happened that day. I often saw mice."
