Meet Me in the Moon Room

(2001)
A collection of stories by

 

"The absurd and the profound are seamlessly joined through fine writing. Meet Me in the Moon Room is a first-rate collection."
Jeffrey Ford


"There is no other planet like planet Ray."
Nina Kiriki Hoffman


"What other writer could make you start laughing halfway down the first page of a story about a man putting on a sweater? Thurber maybe, a long time ago. Buy this book."
Damon Knight


"These are funny, savage stories, all flint and steel, scraps of flannel, pratfalls and prideful weirdness... "
James Sallis


"These stories cannot be compared to anyone else's. There is no one in the same class as Ray Vukcevich. The stories are uniquely, splendidly, brilliantly original, a surprise in each and every one, and brimming with wit and laugh-out-loud humor. A stunning collection."
Kate Wilhelm


Here are 33 weird, wonderful stories concerning men, women, teleportation, wind-up cats, and brown paper bags. By turns whimsical and unsettling - frequently managing to be both - these short fictions describe family relationships, bad breakups, and travel to outer space.

Vukcevich's loopy, fun-house mirror take on everyday life belongs to the same absurdist school of work as that of George Saunders, David Sedaris, Ken Kalfus, and Victor Pelevin, although there is no one quite like him. Try one of these stories, it won't take you long, but it will turn your head inside out.
