Book description
All you need to know about relationships, from A-Z, in 20 stories, by the editor of the extraordinary Golden Handcuffs Review.

"People, swimming in or dragged on helplessly by the riptides of life, is where Lou Rowan pitches his tent to watch, linger, explain, laugh & cry. And we can't but laugh at the laughers in this alphabet of all of us struggling, worrying, self-obsessed, miserable & ridiculous. A stylish, brave & funny book containing a zoo." – MAURICE SCULLY

"Lou Rowan's exuberant and richly varied book presents a series of dramatic monologues whose personal and imaginary components are fused in the blaze of the author's enthusiasm.The feeling that he is doing exactly what he wants to do produces consistently lively results, no matter how downbeat the struggles described – with parents, lovers, wives good and bad, business problems, and of course the inescapable self." – HARRY MATHEWS

"These very short stories are a blend of maybe memoir, crazed case history, and raunchy comic fiction spun by a deadpan narrator with a gift for dazzling transitions." - DAVID ANTIN
