Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Overly suspicious second novel from Arthur Nersesian, author of The Fuck-Up.

Nersesian's brilliant follow-up to his underground classic, The Fuck-Up, Manhattan Loverboyis paranoid delusion and fantastic comedy in the service of social realism. Updating the picaresque chronicles in L. Frank Baum's Wizard of Oz and Kafka's The Trial, MLB is the tale of an orphan whose only known background is that of the city itself, a scaffold-covered grid sewn together with "Do Not Cross" tape. In this overly suspicious masterpiece, love is expressed through corrective surgery, and families meet across boardroom tables.

Arthur Nersesian was managing editor of the literary magazine, the Portable Lower East Side. He was born and raised in New York City.

Synopsis:
