Abstract:

We'd Love to Have You on Our Show is a collection of short fiction preceded by a critical introduction. The stories share a thematic bond in that that all of the protagonists are either obsessed with or could be guests on talk shows. The introduction, "The Meaning of Yearning" explores how Robert Olen Butler and Denis Johnson have influenced me as a young writer attempting to write interconnected, character-driven stories. The introduction begins by chronologically showing how I wrote and then how I changed from workshops to writing this thesis, and it concludes by examining character, theme, and humor throughout Butler's, Johnson's, and my own stories.
