Twenty years ago, Barney the Dinosaur told the nation's children they were special. We're still paying the price.

From "one of the funniest writers in America"* comes a collection of stories culled from the front lines of the millennial culture wars. Rife with failing rock bands, student loans, and participation trophies, Spoiled Brats is about a generation of narcissists-and the well-meaning boomers who made them that way.

A hardworking immigrant is preserved for a century in pickle brine. A helicopter mom strives to educate her demon son. And a family of hamsters struggles to survive in a private-school homeroom.

Surreal, shrewd, and surprisingly warm, these stories are as resonant as they are hilarious.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant Simon Rich is a brilliant young writer. The flagship story, Sell Out, is an absolute standout, but in every story Rich's sharp wit shines. This short story collection is both light and dark, laugh-out-loud funny and even occasionally heart-warming.
