Beschreibung

"Crane seems to be carving out a younger, brassier, less dystopic territory to complement the fiction of George Saunders and David Foster Wallace." -The Quarterly Conversation

In her third short story collection, following When the Messenger is Hot and All This Heavenly Glory, Elizabeth Crane presents a quirky cast of characters all searching for, showing off, or seriously questioning what makes them happy. There's a woman who speaks in all exclamation points, one enamored by her boyfriend's closet, a zombie reality TV star, a mother whose baby turns into Ethan Hawke, and a woman whose moods are printed on her forehead.

Whether breathlessly enthusiastic, serenely calm, or really concentrating right now on their issues, Elizabeth Crane's characters shine a spotlight on our spirituality-starved, self-improvement-seeking, celebrity-obsessed culture.

"In her third collection of inventive short stories, Crane continues to ingeniously satirize our muddled quest for meaning in all the wrong places." -Booklist

"A well-crafted collection of short stories, one whose clarity of tone and theme unites each and every piece into a cohesive whole. At a time when it seems almost antediluvian to be optimistic, Crane's sincerity stands as a bewitching reminder that there is more to literature than tragedy." -Bookslut

"Zombies, time travelers, reality TV contestants and even a few normalish folks populate the pages of Elizabeth Crane's quirky, charming new collection." -PopMatters

Elizabeth Crane is the author of two previous story collections, When the Messenger is Hot and All This Heavenly Glory. Her work has also been featured in numerous publications including Other Voices, Nerve, The Chicago Reader, The Believer, as well as several anthologies, including McSweeney's Future Dictionary of America, The Best Underground Fiction, The Best Show of Their Lives.
