Life Is About Losing Everything

(2014)
A collection of stories by

 
From the author of the wildly controversial books Liar and Paul's Case comes one of the most anticipated - and perhaps, in some quarters, feared - books of the year. This is author Lynn Crosbie at her most honest, most cutting, most hilarious, and most heartbreaking. The stories told here are a repository of a seven-year period in the author's life; they are also a gymnasium where she can flex her prodigious wit and her dazzling stash of literary tricks. Deft with matters both low- and highbrow (here are stories about '80s big-hair bands and the lasting, theological value of the Rocky series; here, too are stories contemplating critical theory and fine art), Life Is About Losing Everything speaks with manic yet grave authority about risking and losing everything, and then sorting through the remains to discover what is beautiful, what is trash, and what, ultimately, belongs.
