Summary:
"A lovesick teenage Cajun girl, a gay Canadian astrophysicist, a teenage sniper on the LAPD payroll, a post-apocalyptic bulletproof-vest salesman: these are some of the cast that make up the stories in Adam Johnson's debut collection. With imaginative grace and verbal acuity, Johnson peels away the veneer of our media-saturated, self-help world, revealing the lonely isolation that binds us all together."--Back cover.
