About this title:
Synopsis:
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.

Product Description:
Fiction. The human contours of the new city, with its surreally shifting social boundaries and incredibly shrinking public zones, remains largely out of reach, with the fortunate exceptions of 'science fiction' writers like J.G. Ballard and John Shirley, and, in a very different way, urban surrealist/satirist Arthur Nersesian ... MLB is paranoid fantasy and fantastic comedy in the service of social realism, using the methods of L. Frank Baum's WIZARD OF OZ or Kafka's THE TRIAL to update the picaresque urban chronicles of Augie March, with a far darker edge ... At its best, MLB assays the grittiest, funkiest urban-magic-realism yet, creating a satirical fiction avidly in search of the truth it's all too aware is even stranger than itself -- Phil Leggiere.
