In this fresh and subtle collection of short stories, Patrick Trotti offers a brutally vivid glimpse of millennial malaise in the Internet age. A high-school dropout struggles through the labyrinthine college admissions process as he is reluctantly drawn into the breakdown of his parents' toxic marriage. A recovering addict finds out on Facebook that his best friend is dead; a college freshman accidentally comes across his high-school girlfriend on a porn site. Set against a backdrop of abandoned factories, faceless strip malls, and suburban alienation, these unsettling and deceptively simple visions of post-industrial despair capture the ambivalence and innocence of a generation coming to terms with a fundamentally stagnant world.
