Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Laugh-out-loud funny and dripping with style, this debut collection of stories holds a fun house mirror to the everyday lives of characters as empathetic as they are absurd. From the self-appointed historian of the title piece to the wage slaves of ?Our Spring Catalog? and ?The Pipe, ? these are characters you?ve met before. They?re quirky visionaries and misguided dreamers sprung from a world of high school ambitions and misunderstood intentions. Laugh-out-loud funny, absurd, and always human, Jack Pendarvis's debut collection is the work of a writer of rare comedic literary talent.
