The Great Frustration

by Seth Fried

Certainly one of the most original and startling short story collections of the year. In most cases, Fried sets the tone from the get-go: 'Last year, the people in charge of the picnic blew us up,' (from “Frost Mountain Picnic Massacre"); 'To begin with, I am a man,' (from “Life in the Harem”). Fried’s settings travel the globe and leap across timelines (including mythical ones, like the garden of Eden in the title story) with such dazzling skill that the reader simply surrenders to these highly-entertaining and thought-provoking stories. — National Book Critics Circle, “Small Press Highlights of 2011”
