More About Middle Men by Jim Gavin
 
 
 
Overview
In this widely acclaimed story collection, 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."
