An anthology of alienation from A to Z, Zyxt consists of 24 brief and darkly comic tales of idealism and despair; friendship and self-loathing; murder and madness. An unnamed narrator recounts a series of anecdotes about his dearest friends - a collection of misanthropic academics, misfortunate composers, and melancholy astronomers - that together form a mosaic of parables, fables, and paradoxes for the bitter and disaffected.

The stories... are reminiscent of Borges in their playfulness, Calvino in their precision and concision, and, most important, Bernhard in their wry misanthropy. The book fairly runs over with the under-appreciated joys of misanthropy mixed with a fundamental love of human strangeness. --Levi Stahl, I'veBeenReadingLately
