About this title


Whether unfolding within the fluorescent glare of the office or in educational cloisters in the present-day United States, these crucial, often darkly hilarious arraignments and instigations place before us a parade of marital defectives, self-terrorized apartment house solitaries, shifty professors, sleep-sickened homework graders and indexers--all running through the heart's entire repertory in pursuit of a fitting catastrophe of the self.


Not bad stories, whatever the title. Rather, Gary Lutz's debut collection shimmers with a spare, elegant prose and a witty sensibility rare for such a young writer. Each story flashes by so quickly it's difficult to get your bearings before its gone and the next is thrust upon you. Even the sentences barely pause for breath: "I was a flask shaped man in a velour shirt sitting at long lunchroom tables in business schools, cosmetology schools, junior colleges, community colleges."
