Trouble: Stories (Vintage Contemporaries)by Patrick Somerville
Synopses & Reviews
A VINTAGE ORIGINAL
In this hilarious and wildly inventive debut, including a title story that was nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Patrick Somerville charts the dangerous territories of adolescence and adulthood for the American male.
In “Puberty,” Brandon takes the matter of his reticent hormones into his own hands. In “English Cousin,” Terrys enigmatic relative arrives, looking to learn about love, stateside. And in “The Future, the Future, the Future,” Dans carefully planned life falters when he sees his wife kissing her boss. Trouble explodes with wicked humor, exuberant braininess, and unforgettable style.
