The Bohemian Guide to Monogamy

Andrew Armacost

THE BOHEMIAN GUIDE TO MONOGAMY operates at the literary edge of the bizarro movement, equally obsessed with weirdness and language, with boundaries and meaning. A patchwork of interlinked short fiction assembles itself into a unified novella that deftly explores the pains and pleasures of love, commitment, family and-yes-monogamy. In this collection, Superman searches for prostitutes, Leonardo DiCaprio falls in love with George Clooney, and a murderous midget learns the limits of revenge while a sperm cell struggles to share his side of the story. And it all manages to form a unified tale, one told with prose that demonstrates an uncommon mastery of tone and dark humor while capturing the primal impulses that seethe beneath-and therefore threaten-all human relationships. WARNING: depending on your disposition, this book could leave you feeling dizzy, disgusted, clammy, enlightened or disturbingly uncertain.
