Publisher's Summary

A Hellenistic god who can't escape his past; a rock band whose music is so bad it paralyzes from the waist down; a black-market vegetable genetically-modified for self-abuse - these are just a few of the stories of melancholy and wonder inside The Gymnasium, an exercise in "literary taxidermy" by the author of Float the Pooch. By "re-stuffing" what goes in-between the opening and closing lines of classic works by Milan Kundera, Virginia Woolf, Richard Brautigan, Ian Fleming, and others, Mark Malamud has stitched together a wholly-original kind of fiction. 

Come, take a listen to the stories that inspired the Literary Taxidermy Short Story Competition. You won't be disappointed. 

Recorded at Jack Straw Productions in Seattle, Washington. Engineering by Joel Maddox. Eighteen short stories, read by the author.
