Bouncing among experimental fiction, absurdist farce, paranoid futurism and stinging satire, Boudinot's comic, inventive prose lays bare the hopes and anxieties of our age. From a heartbreaking and pitch-perfect account of the end of Bert and Ernie's relationship, to a story about lovelorn robots looking for a 'chop-shop owner who's willing to look the other way' in a world where robot sex is illegal, to a Miyazaki-esque story about an entire town that shares the same heart, Boudinot's prose crackles with acerbic wit.
