ABOUT THE BOOK
From Alabama to California, Detroit to New Orleans, Bob presents a feast of themes, settings, and characters. These stories cover it all—sex, drugs, innocence, war, greed, love, death, and even rock and roll. Bob’s main course of steady tension and ironic humor allow us to savor each story, even if we do occasionally have an uneasy aftertaste. Protagonists (and antagonists) range from troubled adolescents to grotesque capitalists. These scattered characters often follow dark paths—and find even darker truths. Some chase fame, some seek comfort, others struggle for understanding. Often smothered in conflict, the main characters rarely swallow their refection, but the reader enjoys a whole dinner of Bob’s uncanny perception and keen description.
