In this hilarious and wildly inventive debut, including a title story that was nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Patrick Somerville charts the dangerous territories of adolescence and adulthood for the American male.

In ?Puberty,? Brandon takes the matter of his reticent hormones into his own hands. In ?English Cousin,? Terry?s enigmatic relative arrives, looking to learn about love, stateside. And in ?The Future, the Future, the Future,? Dan?s carefully planned life falters when he sees his wife kissing her boss. Trouble explodes with wicked humor, exuberant braininess, and unforgettable style.

About the Author: Patrick Somerville was born and raised in Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He taught English and creative writing at Cornell, where he also earned his MFA. Trouble is his first book of fiction. He currently lives in Chicago.
