Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this wholly unpredictable collection of tongue-in-chic short stories, Beth Lisick casts a cool eye on the lost and living dead of offices, nightclubs, shopping malls, and rent-controlled apartments. Pretentious web designers, reality show wannabes, and hipster party girls are among the characters populating a seemingly ordinary world teetering on the brink of chaos.

Review:

"She transforms the mundane into comic-absurd revelations on the human experience." SF Weekly

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

Pretentious Web designers are a dime a dozen in this world, boring everyone with their tales of vacations in Cuba and start-up IPOs. How is anybody supposed to breathe amidst all this hot air? In this wholly unpredictable collection of "tongue-in-chic" short stories, Lisick unveils a world of interrelatedness with its often incomprehensible coincidences.
