9781942712626: The Bohemian Guide to Monogamy

THE BOHEMIAN GUIDE TO MONOGAMY operates at the literary edge of the bizarro movement, equally obsessed with weirdness and language, with boundaries and meaning. A patchwork of interlinked short fiction assembles itself into a unified novella that deftly explores the pains and pleasures of love, commitment, family and—yes—monogamy. In this collection, Superman searches for prostitutes, Leonardo DiCaprio falls in love with George Clooney, and a murderous midget learns the limits of revenge while a sperm cell struggles to share his side of the story. And it all manages to form a unified tale, one told with prose that demonstrates an uncommon mastery of tone and dark humor while capturing the primal impulses that seethe beneath—and therefore threaten—all human relationships. WARNING: depending on your disposition, this book could leave you feeling dizzy, disgusted, clammy, enlightened or disturbingly uncertain.

Review:

"...The Bohemian Guide to Monogamy, taking an earnest shot atfinding the beauty in the heart of the aging American male and doing a greatjob in general. It is an energetic and creative story that moves to the beat ofits own drum...a metafictional, sexually charged and pop culture laced satire ofmaturity and commitment. It's intense and cerebral, but it's funny as hell soit feels instantly rewarding. Armacost writes it with a passion and energy and asense of humor that make him unique...smart, cerebral and uproarious...It's yourfirst mandatory stop for 2016."
--Dead End Follies

"The book follows the struggles of conventional familyvalues through an unconventional format."
--NUVO Magazine
