Description

"Gilbert's dead-on mimicry of conversational rhythms makes even the most ludicrous exchanges sound plausible, and he applies physical details sparingly and potently.wickedly funny." -Adam Goodheart, The New York Times Book Review The masterfully crafted stories that comprise Remote Feed mark the auspicious debut of a daring and remarkably perceptive writer. From war-torn Bosnia to a college sorority house to kill-or-be-killed Hollywood, David Gilbert uses bold prose and dark wit to paint a devastating picture of "normal" life on the brink of desperation and paranoia. His insights into the minor tragedies, disappointments, and desires that shape us reflect a deep understanding of human nature and a genuine compassion for his characters. Filled with startling twists, piercing irony, and layers of meaning, the world Gilbert creates in Remote Feed is a complex one-often hilarious, sometimes frightening, but always fascinating. "The short stories in David Gilbert's Remote Feed speak volumes about the ways modern men seek adventure and comfort." -Sara Nelson, Glamour "These stories are funny and thoroughly entertaining.Keep an eye on this guy David Gilbert." -Mike Musgrove, The Washington Post
