About this Item

Paperback. 318 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.If Holden Caulfield had grown up in an age of environmental politics he might sound like Cute Eats Cutes 15-year-old narrator. Set in a Midwestern town at the turn of the millennium, Sams mother embraces Wicca, his dad dials in talk radio, and his eco-warrior friends shift into hyper-drive as the community goes up in arms when deer are slated for culling from a large urban park. Organically wrapped in paradox and irony, Cute Eats Cute explores the many false utopias its characters embrace. Sam discovers the human condition is really about finding out which tribe youre in, and in doing so, learns to navigate the turbulent waters of this so-called life. Cute Eats Cute -- the title taken from a speech Sams dad makes at his high school defending the urban deer hunt-- encapsulates how animals eat one another for survival and defense. And the food chain never sleeps. The satirical jabs at the mens movement, the deafening but impressionable rhetoric of the gun-toting Christian right group, The Hunters of Men, and the fragile friendship of Sams school chums (who are each facing down their own personal issues against their blind ecology crusade) all conspire to make Murphys novel a page-turning delight. But its not without its carefully constructed messages. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780983091240

About this title

Synopsis:

If Holden Caulfield had grown up in an age of environmental politics he might sound like Cute Eats Cute's 15-year-old narrator. Set in a Midwestern town at the turn of the millennium, Sam's mother embraces Wicca, his dad dials in talk radio, and his eco-warrior friends shift into hyper-drive as the community goes up in arms when deer are slated for culling from a large urban park. Organically wrapped in paradox and irony, Cute Eats Cute explores the many false utopias its characters embrace. Sam discovers the human condition is really about finding out which tribe you're in, and in doing so, learns to navigate the turbulent waters of this so-called life. Cute Eats Cute -- the title taken from a speech Sam's dad makes at his high school defending the urban deer hunt-- encapsulates how animals eat one another for survival and defense. And the food chain never sleeps. The satirical jabs at the men's movement, the deafening but impressionable rhetoric of the gun-toting Christian right group, The Hunters of Men, and the fragile friendship of Sam's school chums (who are each facing down their own personal issues against their blind ecology crusade) all conspire to make Murphy's novel a page-turning delight. But it's not without its carefully constructed messages.

From the Author:

"The book explores -- and warns us about -- the many false utopias that its characters embody at one level or another," says the Minnesota-based novelist, who is also a filmmaker, cartoonist and painter. Murphy says his colorful writing style and sensibility is influenced as much by the popular culture offerings of the Coen Brothers' films, the music of David Bryne and Nick Cave, or the absurd comedy of Mystery Science 3000 as he is by authors he greatly admires, including everyone from George Saunders, Chuck Palaniuk, and David Sedaris. "The Coen's Brothers, for example, consistently mine life's laws of unintended consequences. That's where you find the most meaningful drama and comedy all mixed together."
