A sparkling debut from David Tabak, these thirteen darkly funny, bleakly hopeful stories range in theme and tone from Franz Kafka to Shalom Auslander.
Tabak sees the silver lining--and also sees that the lining is badly ripped. He knows the glass is half-full--but half-full of something that tastes God-awful, and no way to dump it out without the hostess seeing. And he's certain that life has meaning--except, that meaning is written in a secret code, and nobody has the key.
Lather Rinse Repeat is...
(a) Funny little sad stories about people who just want Horton to hear them, too.
(b) The sacred text of a failed religion.
(c) Things that aren't real, but really are.
(d) The love child of Franz Kafka and that girl you liked in high school who didn't know your name.
(e) All of the above.
