"I think it's the fault of movies that we imagine ourselves as the stars..." Justin Taylor's collection of short stories is a wonderful look at the messy lives of adults as they slide from their mid-20s into their thirties and beyond. Friends become strangers, love gets complicated, and wild nights have increasingly bad consequences. — Chris Linendoll


In a new suite of powerful and incisive stories, Justin Taylor captures the lives of men and women unmoored from their pasts and uncertain of their futures. A man writes his girlfriend a Dear John letter, gets in his car, and just drives. A widowed insomniac is roused from malaise when an alligator appears in her backyard. A group of college friends try to stay close after graduation, but are drawn away from - and back toward - each other by the choices they make. A boy's friendship with a pair of identical twins undergoes a strange and tragic evolution over the course of adolescence. A promising academic and her fiancee attempt to finish their dissertations, but struggle with writer's block, a nasty secret, and their own expert knowledge of Freud.
