An admirer of Miley Cyrus performs a three-thousand word sentence in defence of his passion. Actor Matthew McConaughey descends into a surreal stupefying desert of the soul. An aging porn star dons a grotesque dinosaur costume to film the sex scene of his life. Such are the speakers and stars in a colection of stories that explodes the conventions of short fiction. Though shifting wildly in tone, structure and perspective from one page to the next, each of these nine mercurial stories is drenched in pop culture, the distancing effects of modern communication and the malaise of solitary existence. At its core, these stories are a portrait of ordinary people (as well as celebrities they're just like us!) striving, thinking and suffering alone.
