About this title

Synopsis:

Is the automobile the new dog? David Bromige's Thurberesque title suggests that it is. In this collection of humorous stories, prose poems, and casual essays, Bromige gives us modern life as it was lived in by a romantically complicated Northern California male from the 1950s through the 1980s - and as it was seen from behind the wheel of a T-Bird, a Volkswagen Beetle, and a BMW.
Bromige's stories capture the concentrated essence and the startling insight of poetry in everyday language. He writes about grad students striving and slackers growing slacker; about young love flowering and old marriages foundering; about poets and therapists and, quite often, about Sven, a poor immigrant lad whose great ambition is to own a Cadillac but who is endearingly, tearfully attached to his aging '75 Chevy Nova. A charming memento of a bygone era, this book will remind many people of a certain age about what they once thought they needed, and about how that neediness felt.

About the Author:

David Bromige is a Canadian born in England and resident in the United States. He was (by choice) on the fringe of the Vancouver Tish Group in the sixties, and he's in the neighbourhood of the "language" writers now. Bromige's Desire: Selected Poems 1963-1987 (Black Sparrow) won the 1988 Western States Book Award
