Publisher's Summary

Thirteen hilarious, moving, and beautifully brutal stories by David Gordon, the award-winning author of Mystery Girl and The Serialist.

In these funny, surprising, and touching stories, Gordon gets at the big stuff - art and religion, literature and madness, the supernatural, and the dark fringes of sexuality - in his own unique style, described by novelist Rivka Galchen as "Dashiell Hammett divided by Don DeLillo, to the power of Dostoyevsky - yet still pure David Gordon."

Gordon's creations include ex-gangsters and terrifying writing coaches, Internet girlfriends and bogus memoirists, Chinatown ghosts, and vampires of Queens. "The Amateur" features a cafe encounter with a terrible artist who carries a mind-blowing secret. In the long, beautifully brutal title story, a man numbed by life finds himself flirting with and mourning lost souls in the purgatory of sex chatrooms. The result is both unflinching and hilarious, heartbreaking and life-affirming.

    "At times great"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Too uneven. I liked some of the stories but some of them, especially the Title story missed the mark for me. Too perverted for me. I don't like reading about sexual fetishes. Most of these stories are written from the perspective of a white middle aged literature professor who is trying to launch a literary career. I'm ok with that but it gets a little boring, we know who you are, there are many white middle aged men who want a literary career. But when the writing gets past that it is really good and I would consider reading another book by this author.
