Synopses & Reviews
Stacey Richter, Pushcart Prize winner and a Village Voice Writer on the Verge, combines acute observations with profound compassion to chronicle the obscure narratives of American life -- from rock-groupie love to Internet dating to drug-hungry Health Ed teachers. An honest and affecting explorer of human experience, Richter turns tales from the fringe into stunningly intimate depictions of loss and loneliness. Her voice is distinctly original and deeply funny.
This acclaimed collection of short stories from a talented young Pushcart Prize-winning writer provides wickedly funny, in-your-face contortions of all facets of our popular culture.
