Blurry and Disconnected: Tales of Sink-or-Swim Nihilism (Paperback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


Wildly provocative, darkly humorous, and entertaining tales full of fancy talk and big words. A one-armed ice cream man, clueless underground celebrities, an avant-garde sax player--each characterized with no regard for politically correct notions or a personal agenda.The first short story, "Make Mine a Chocolate Eclair" elaborates on the account of a one-armed Good Humor man related years ago to Dave by a fellow sixteen-year-old dishwasher at a Chinese restaurant in a strip mall. Novella "Chinese Finger Puzzle" chronicles the antics of journalist Philo Smith as bandwagon-jumping toadies and a self-serving media manipulate him as a pawn to propagate a disturbing trend in music. Then short story "Bizarre and Majestic" documents an episode at the subsidiary recording studio of a larger recording studio in Detroit, where Dave worked as an assistant engineer for George Clinton's stable of Parliament-Funkadelic bands.
