Description: A powerful, funny, and wise debut from a writer Esquire praises as "the second coming of Denis Johnson."In this widely acclaimed story collection, New Yorker contributor Jim Gavin delivers a hilarious and panoramic vision of California, in which a number of down-on-their-luck men, from young dreamers to old vets, make valiant forays into middle-class respectability. Each of the men in Gavin's stories is stuck somewhere in the middle, caught halfway between his dreams and the often crushing reality of his life. A work of profound humanity that pairs moments of high comedy with searing truths about life's missed opportunities, Middle Men brings to life unforgettable characters as they learn what it means to love and work and exist in the world as a man. Hailed as "a modern-day Dubliners" (Time Out) and "reminiscent of Tom Perotta's best work" (The Boston Globe), this stellar debut has the Los Angeles Review of Books raving, "Middle Men deserves its hype and demonstrates a top-shelf talent...A brilliant sense of humor animates each story and creates a state of near-continuous reading pleasure."
