Summary: "I'm thrilled to see him in bookstores at last."--Jonathan Lethem, author of The Fortress of Solitude "Filled with stunning images and incantatory rhythms."-- Time Out Chicago A wide-ranging and assured, surprising, and funny debut collection. Alan DeNiro's gently surreal stories use a toolbox of genres (including science fiction and fantasy) to grapple with issues of identity, family, gender, and politics. (Think Aimee Bender or George Saunders.) Even in the oddest moments, these characters are real people grappling with real relationships and real heartbreaks. The title story was shortlisted for the O. Henry Award. A Book Sense Pick. Alan DeNiro lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
