"Ben Greenman's masterwork of stories inspired by letters offers fresh insight into the mysteries of intimacy. A seriously brilliant and lyrical piece of modern fiction, with characters so alive and sincere and full of longing, they may climb out of the book and follow you home."--Simon Van Booy, author of the Frank O'Connor Short Story Award-winning Love Begins in Winter "Ben Greenman's prose is characterized by an effortless musicality. This collection finds him in peak form, simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious. But it's the beauty of his language that gets me."--Rhett Miller, lead singer, The Old 97s "This book is like a strobe light--in short, sharp bursts, Ben Greenman renders the world we know into something startling, hypnotizing, and downright trippy."--Daniel Handler "Greenman offers quiet, serious stories lifted by occasional humor and linked by instances of written correspondence.
