Overview

Arbitrary Stupid Goal is a completely riveting world when I looked up from its pages regular life seemed boring and safe and modern like one big iPhone. This book captures not just a lost New York but a whole lost way of life. Miranda July


In Arbitrary Stupid Goal, Tamara Shopsin takes the reader on a pointillist time-travel trip to the Greenwich Village of her bohemian 1970s childhood, a funky, tight-knit small town in the big city, long before Sex and the City tours and luxury condos. The center of Tamara s universe is Shopsin s, her family s legendary greasy spoon, aka The Store, run by her inimitable dad, Kenny a loquacious, contrary, huge-hearted man who, aside from dishing up New York s best egg salad on rye, is Village sheriff, philosopher, and fixer all at once. All comers find a place at Shopsin s table and feast on Kenny s tall tales and trenchant advice along with the incomparable chili con carne.

Filled with clever illustrations and witty, nostalgic photographs and graphics, and told in a sly, elliptical narrative that is both hilarious and endearing, Arbitrary Stupid Goal is an offbeat memory-book mosaic about the secrets of living an unconventional life, which is becoming a forgotten art.
