About this product
- DescriptionIn <i>Middle Men</i>, Stegner Fellow and <i>New Yorker</i> contributor Jim Gavin delivers a hilarious and paramic vision of California, portraying a group of men, from young dreamers to old vets, as they make valiant forays into middle-class respectability. In Play the Man a high-school basketball player aspires to a college scholarship, in Elephant Doors, a production assistant on a game show moonlights as a stand-up comedian, and in the collection's last story, the immensely moving Costello, a middle-aged plumbing supplies salesman comes to terms with the death of his wife. The men in Gavin's stories all find themselves stuck somewhere in the middle, caught half way between their dreams and the often crushing reality of their lives. A work of profound humanity that pairs moments of high comedy with searing truths about life's missed opportunities, <i>Middle Men</i> brings to life a series of unforgettable characters learning what it means to love and work and be in the world as a man, and it offers our first look at a gifted writer who has just begun teaching us the tools of his trade.
