Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Subjects float and mutate, confounding observation and analysis." — from "Variations on a Party"

Charles Ullmann has emerged as a one-man fiction and satire wrecking ball, an expatriate looking in from the outside, a mad scientist who shapes words and sentences into stories that are odd, funny, shocking, and new.

Review:

"While reading Mr. Ullmann's living strategies and stories, keep in mind the following eastern aesthetic principles: suggestion, irregularity, simplicity, perishability. And once you read through these stories twice, if you think the basic fact of the book contradicts that last one, eat these pages immediately; their unique nutrition is guaranteed, especially for those whose appetites are jaded or sated." Lee Klein
