Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

"Boy Born with Tattoo of Elvis", "Titanic Victim Speaks through Waterbed", "Woman Uses Glass Eye to Spy on Philandering Husband"--these are just a few of the extraordinary stories from Robert Olen Butler's hilarious and frequently heartbreaking new collection of stories. An HBO series based on the book is scheduled to air in Fall 1997.


Review:

"It is Mr. Butler's genius in this volume to lure an audience into the tend...and then providing more than the customer has been led to expect....Mr. Butler often transforms the material's coarseness--and a reader's anticipated guffaws--into lyricism and wonder....[I]f Flannery O'Connor were still around, she'd probably be working the same territory....As in much of Nicholson Baker's work, sweetness governs even the madder reaches of his ingenuity....[I]f you're frustrated by the way nothing much seems to happen in modern short fiction, you'll find 'Tabloid Dreams' a whole different story."

Thomas Mallon, New York Times Book Review, 11/03/1996

Review:

"'Tabloid Dreams' is full-blown American magical realism: funny, lyrical, striking. Its stories seek and find meaning in our very own myths....In the end this is a highly uplifting book."

Alex Chisholm, Boston Book Review, Nov./Dec. 1996
