This extraordinary first collection of short stories covers the landscape of dysfunctional childhood, urban angst, and human disconnection with a wit and insight that keep you riveted. The characters here have rich and imaginative interior lives, but grave difficulty relating to the outside world. The beginning story, Ducklings, introduces the overweight and over-enthusiastic Marjorie, the last 12-year-old you would want babysitting your toddler. In Wanted we meet Eleanor, a single girl living in Chicago who may or may not be dating a serial killer. Another Cancer Story is an unsentimental account of two sisters whose beloved mother just won't seem to die, and The Last Dead Boyfriend gives us a recovering addict who keeps encountering her recently deceased boyfriend, an unpleasant man she wished she'd broken up with before he died.

Always funny, often dark, and wholly satisfying, these stories explore the longing for connection among characters who are frequently stricken with anxiety. Each story is rendered in a way that is surreal, vivid, and entirely convincing.

Winner of Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction.

    " I may be biased as this was written by a friend, but it's funny, endearing and witty. The characters and their situations are at the same time both incredibly laughable and cry-able. "
