With wonderfully idiosyncratic characters and deft use of detail, Gerald Shapiro takes us beyond the grimmness of the lives of his characters to reveal the hunger--and the hope--in us all.
Gerald Shapiro teaches English at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. His stories have appeared in Kenyon Review, Gettysburg Review, Quarterly West, and other literary magazines.
"A promising first collection of nine stories abut men full of Weltschmerz and tangled up by affairs of the head; Shapiro's sardonic delivery is leavened by a black humor reminiscent of Bruce Jay Friedman."--Kirkus Reviews
