About this product
- DescriptionA powerful, funny, and wise debut from a writer <i>Esquire</i> praises as the second coming of Denis Johnson. In this widely acclaimed story collection, Jim Gavin delivers a hilarious and paramic vision of California, in which a number of down-on-their-luck men, from young dreamers to old vets, make valiant forays into middle-class respectability. Each of the men in Gavin's stories is stuck somewhere in the middle, caught halfway between his dreams and the often crushing reality of his life. 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 unforgettable characters as they learn what it means to love and work and exist in the world as a man. Hailed as a modern-day <i>Dubliners</i> (<i>Time Out</i> ) and reminiscent of Tom Perotta's best work (<i>The Boston Globe</i>), this stellar debut has the <i>Los Angeles Review of Books</i> raving, <i>Middle Men</i> deserves its hype and demonstrates a top-shelf talent. . . . A brilliant sense of humor animates each story and creates a state of near-continuous reading pleasure.
