In this widely acclaimed literary debut, Benjamin Cavell stalks the male ego, unleashing a ferocious volley of nine sharply written and deeply penetrating stories.
In Balls, Balls, Balls, we are introduced to Logan Bryant, the star member of the "fourth best paintball team in the tristate area." Despite his knowledge of napalm recipes and his skill during Military Simulations--MilSim, for short--Logan's armor shows fractures with every move he makes. In The Death of Cool, an insurance adjuster has come to realize much too clearly the range of threats that surround him. "Tired of trusting in the other guy's morality," he embraces his paranoia and leaves as little to chance as possible. The Ropes opens in a hospital room after Alex Folsom has sustained a devastating concussion. With both college and his boxing career behind him, he reunites with his father on Martha's Vineyard to assess the damage--both physical and emotional. Rumble, Young Man, Rumble is a ground-shaking announcement of the next heavy hitter in American letters.
