From Thor Garcia, author of the monumental The News Clown—whose “flashy, satirical style keeps the narrative fresh, entertaining and eminently readable throughout” (Publishers Weekly)—comes a compelling collection of interlocking stories, Only Fools Die of Heartbreak. The hellraising, nightmarish genius of Thor Garcia has returned in this explosive collection of sordid, hilarious, gut-twisting tales. Meet the infamous Lenka, the mournful cripple who never met a penis she didn’t want to chop. Or Cleo Blump, beaten and raped from an early age, who rises to lead the Blond Revolution. There’s father Ernie, the athletic standout who never did care much for being a man. And George P., the poet and ex-boxer who finds it all floating out of his grasp. Meet Halingwhorst, the drunk, once-scorned writer, as he edges toward unimaginable triumph. And the anonymous man ruined by divorce, who runs into a dangerously un-smooth criminal on the day Michael Jackson died. Jump on and let Thor Garcia take you on a hard-drinking, hard-living drive. It’s a no-holes-barred assassination of our world today. The horror, madness and humor – along with the impeccable dialogue and fast-moving prose – of Only Fools Die of Heartbreak will leave you breathless.
