About this product
- DescriptionTwins who anesthetize and dress up small animals to cheer their grieving mother; childhood friends who return every year to the amusement park near the site of their kidnapping; an awkward teen trying to find his way among the ruins of Greek mythology camp; brothers brought together by stolen airport baggage: these are some of the characters who populate Joe Me's first collection of stories. Oddballs and charmers, they are souls t so much lost as wandering, looking for something better, trying to explain or, if all else fails, to entertain. Me's work - celebrated for its unflinching honesty ( Entertainment Weekly ) and poetic and visceral style ( Booklist ) - resonates with the unmistakable magic and curious mystery of modern life.
