In this devilishly clever collection of short fiction, renowned humorist Owen Egerton leads us on a wildly surprising, darkly comic, and often heart-wrenching ride into the terrible beauty of life’s end. With razor wit and compassionate insight, Egerton has a crafted a work that brilliantly explores the pain and wonder of life, knowing that with the turn of any corner death could be panhandling for your soul.
More surreal than hilarious, these stories cast a derisive light on contemporary American optimism and self-righteousness, and are held together by existential themes. Egerton offers a collection in the vein of Chuck Palahniuk, full of cynical insight and sardonic humor.
Creepy and disturbingly funny.
