Abstract or Description

The Mechanical Copula is a solo-authored collection of short stories.

Stripping bare the accord of culture and commodity, this sequence of stories tracks the slimy path of social mobility with serious playfulness and an eye for the absurd.

Tales of Donald Sutherland fucking a doll, two men eating a clown and how the obsessive searching of bins can transform trash into meaning, this is a book about the porous relationship between the extramundane and the average.
