Description

Winner of the 2018 Sapir Prize. You need to bribe someone into giving you weed? Don’t worry, just step into this court room and call the defendant a murderer. You’re a rich, lonely man and you want the joy of company? Don’t worry, just buy up people’s birthdays, and you’ll have friends calling every day. You need to get girls into bed? Don’t worry, your writer friend will write you a very persuasive story. You’re standing on the edge of a very high building, with all of your wretched sorrows? Don’t worry, fly already! In these 22 short stories, wild capers reveal painful emotional truths, and the bizarre is just another name for the familiar. Wickedly funny and thrillingly smart, Fly Already is a collage of absurdity, despair and love, written by veteran commentator on the circus farce that is life.
