Beschreibung:

David Gilbert's dark and daring collection of stories was admitted by critics and readers alike when first published in 1998. Gilbert's stories stretch from war-torn Bosnia to a college sorority house to kill-or-be-killed Hollywood. Gilbert's bold prose and perceptive wit paint a devastating picture of normal life on the brink of desperation and paranoia. His insights into the minor tragedies, disappointments, and desires that shape us reflect a deep understanding of human nature and a genuine compassion for his characters. Filled with startling twists, piercing irony, and layers of meaning, the world Gilbert creates in Remote Feed is a complex one-often hilarious, sometimes frightening, but always fascinating. A New York Times Notable Book "e;Gilbert's dead-on mimicry of conversational rhythms makes even the most ludicrous exchanges sound plausible, and he applies physical details sparingly and potently...wickedly funny."e;-New York Times Book Review "e;Hilarious and unnerving."e;-Vanity Fair "e;These stories are funny and thoroughly entertaining."e;-Washington Post "e;One is mesmerized by Gilbert's daring and absolute persuasiveness."e;-Time Out "e;Gilbert is wonderful. I hope readers flock to these vivid tales."e;-Jay Parini "e;Gilbert's strange takes and wonderful dark humor intrude upon the familiar until his own singular vision prevails-he doesn't let anyone get away with anything."e;-Amy Hempel
