Life Is About Losing EverythingBook - 2012
A blend of fiction and fantastical memoir that sketches seven tumultuous years in the author's life, told in a series of short stories. The stories are at once a cache, a repository, of a period in the author's life; and, too, a gymnasium, a place 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.
