Details

In Ben Greenman's wildly original debut, slapstick humor sits comfortably--and sometimes not so comfortably--alongside literary fiction and experimental writings. The 25 pieces in this collection range from the traditional to the impossible. 'What 100 People, Real and Fake, Believe About Dolores' tells you an old story--boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy may or may not be implicated in disappearance of girl--in a surprising and entirely new way. In 'Blurbs,' which owes as much to Warner Bros. Cartoons as to daily newspapers, a slyly egomaniacal author imagines the critical reception of the piece he is writing. Mixing elements of Jorge Luis Borges, Donald Barthelme, and Albert Brooks, Greenman attempts a high-wire act that combines literature, comedy, and the pleasures of the text.
