"Impotent" is a collection of moving stories about a time when individuals are reduced to letters on a medical chart and "it is easier to get a refill on a prescription than approval for therapy." In revealing vignettes, Matthew Roberson clinically catalogs the hopes, dreams, and failures of people identified only through form-like abbreviations (C-- for co-dependent, I-- for Insured). In these "case studies," Roberson captures his subjects'' lives poignantly by supplementing their diagnoses with unconventional footnotes, lists, and medicinal warnings. Each vignette exposes a different facet of our medicated society, humanizing a multitude of conditions: depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, impotence, and dementia. In a world of domestic ennui, deadpan voices struggle to transcend numbness while simultaneously trying to manage the pain of living. "Impotent" is both important social commentary and engrossing fiction.
