“Pat Rushin is out of his fucking mind. I like that in a writer.” –Terry Gilliam, director of Brazil

A father, sick of speaking, takes a lifelong vow of silence. A literature PhD candidate falls prey to her psycho poet roommate. A dog pining for steak spontaneously combusts. From the author of The Call and Puzzling Through the News, Pat Rushin’s latest collection fuses the familiar and the uncanny. Each darkly funny story is like a parallel universe where everyday characters find themselves in a reality slightly askew from the one we know.
