A boy eats his way to self-discovery, while another must battle the reality-brandishing monster preying on his fantasy realm. Elsewhere, an aerobics instructorâthe daughter of a Holocaust survivorâmakes the most shocking leap imaginable to save her soul. These are just a few of the characters youâll encounter in Sam Lipsyteâs richly imagined world.
FeaturingÂ a grizzled and possibly deranged male doula, a doomsday hustler who must face the multi-universal truth of âthe real-ass jumbo,â and a tawdry glimpse of a high school shot-putting circuit in northern New Jersey, circa 1986, Lipsyteâs short stories combine the tragicomic brilliance of his beloved novels with the compressed vitality of Venus Drive. The Fun Parts is Lipsyte at his very bestâa far-ranging exploration of new voices and vistas from âthe most consistently funny fiction writer working todayâ (Time).
