about this book

Open City co-founder and co-editor Robert Bingham makes a notable literary debut with this collection of stories that tracks the conscience and consciousness of a generation that grew up privileged, educated, and in search of meaning. Bingham's lean, potent stories recall Fitzgerald in their chronicling of a young, reckless social elite; Salinger in their intellectual acuity, emotional depth and dark humor; and transgressive writers like Dennis Cooper in their pervasive sense of danger and impending violence.
