Summary:

In these beautifully brutal stories, David Gordon gets at the big stuff—art and religion, literature and madness, the supernatural, and the dark fringes of sexuality—in his own unique, effortlessly funny style, described by Rivka Galchen as “Dashiell Hammett divided by Don DeLillo, to the power of Dostoyevsky—yet still pure David Gordon.” Here you’ll meet ex–hit men and terrifying writing coaches, Internet girlfriends and bogus memoirists, Chinatown ghosts and vampires of Queens. The narrator of “Man-Boob Summer” (first published in the Paris Review) moves into his folks’ New Jersey apartment complex, where he naps, does the crossword, and falls in love with the teenage lifeguard. “The Amateur” features a café encounter with a terrible artist who harbors a mind-blowing secret, a story that somehow evokes The Sopranos as written by W. G. Sebald. And in the exquisitely transgressive title track, a man numbed by life finds himself flirting with and mourning the lost souls in the purgatory of sex chatrooms. It’s the culmination of Gordon’s powers, a story at once unflinching and funny, heartbreaking and life-affirming.
