Baby & Other Stories

A collection of stories by


"These stories bleed, yes, but that's because they brawl. The real houswives of Bomerworld break themselves and break your heart and yet never completely lose their soulful dignity."
Sam Lipsyte

Paula Bomer is a dangerous writer. The short stories in her debut collection are subversive portraits of the modern American family. From a husband who traces his internal crisis to witnessing his wife giving birth, to a mother who forces her young son on a rainy walk through a cemetery as she contemplates the detritus of her marriage, Bomer s characters are hauntingly familiar. Their fear and rage, their failures and desires are our own.
