Product Overview

This collection of stories marks the debut of a startingly original new writer. Zsuzsi Gartner's exuberant prose gives voice to unforgettable characters in search of hope and meaning as they cope with indifferent relationships, lackluster jobs, and a gnawing sense of dread in a world gone numb.
A woman calls in fake bomb threats from the nineteenth floof of a bank tower as revenge against her ex-lover. The mother of a girl killed by a teenage urban guerilla thrives spectacularly in her industrious grief, transforming herself into a forgiveness guru and talk-show host. Lured into the wilderness by her desire for a man who rebuilds vintage airplanes, a young woman finds she lusts more for biscotti and city sidewalks. A small heroic child makes a guileless request for pajamas and creates a psychic storm at the center of her anxious, achievement-mad parents' lives.
Rendered in a jittery, jazzed-up proze that has been compared to that of Lorris Moore and Mary Flanagan, thse stories brillantly capture the pathos, beauty, and alienation of contemporary life and signal the arrival of a writer to watch.
