Karen Chance's 'Parallax' folds out like an accordion to literally present 'two sides to a story'. It depicts the thoughts and reveries of two men who encounter each other on the subway, one straight, one gay, and their opposing views on male homosexuality. Each side of the book is dedicated to the opinions and fears of one of the two men, but the last frame serves as the same ending to both stories: the realization that they will have to sit next to each other on their journey.
