Synopsis: A triptych of nine darkly comic stories, Omicron Ceti III opens a window onto the margins of American middle class intelligentsia. A high school English teacher rumored to be an undercover agent for the FBI, an international investment banker driven to extremes in his quest for a culinary soul mate, and an orthodontist's son obsessed by the number three are a few typical characters in this innovative, literate, and sometimes disturbing collection. Balazs, a writer once described as 'the unlikely lovechild of Vonnegut, Nabokov, and Telly Savalas,' incorporates drawings, lists, and allusions ranging from Star Trek to Middlemarch, testing the boundaries between high and low, comedy and pathos, light and dark.
