If you've read Zack's novel, Sex in the Title, but haven't ventured into reading any of his short stories, this is an excellent chance (and price!) to read more of his fabulous works.
Here are my reviews of Zack's stories in "Stories and Scripts: an Anthology" --
The Doorman is an inspiring and thought-provoking short story.
It struck a cord with me, especially since I live so close to NYC and could totally appreciate Alex' thoughts and reactions towards his experiences in the story.
For those of you who have read Zack Love's Sex in the Title, this novelette is a departure from Zack's witty, silly and humorous anecdotes, showcasing his amazing ability to write a thoughtful, deep and beautiful story.
If you haven't yet read any of Zack's works, I highly recommend this short story as an excellent introduction to his awesome writing!
CENTRAL PARK SONG:
In his Latin epic poem, The Aeneid, Roman poet Virgil wrote, "Omnia Vincit Amor" which means, "Love Conquers All" And that's exactly what Zack Love writes about in Central Park Song! This screenplay is about Rodney and Melinda, two totally different people from two totally different worlds. As both search for their true dreams and desires,they meet and their connection is immediate. And as is always true with life and love, there are many obstacles that are in their way. I don't want to spoil the story by telling you anymore, but I will say that Zack Love has written an awesome love story here and his words weave a tale that is beautiful, touching and heartwarming! And definitely a must read! :)
One of my favorite quotes (among many) from Central Park Song: "I think the love completes the soul. Just like knowledge completes the mind"
Beautifully written, City Solipsism allows the reader to get a glimpse into the mind of a man, Jack, who is taking his normal, boring commute into his NYC job. Boring until he spots an attractive woman who just so happens to board the same subway car as Jack and shares the same metal pole with him. Intrigued by this beauty, Jack shares with us his thoughts, memories, hope and desires... all invoked by this mysterious, beautiful stranger. Oh and the ending? Won't spoil it for you but if you've read "Sex In The Title" by Zack, then you will know that it is DEFINITELY Zack Love...True To Form!
WAITING FOR 2000 - AN ABSURDIST COMEDY OF BILLIONAIRE PROPORTIONS:
You know those days when you come home from work (Usually on a Monday!) after having a grueling, stressful day? When all you want to do is wind down and relax, but walk through the door only to find that your cat has puked up a fur ball on your brand new area rug and the kids have piled dirty dishes sky high in the sink instead of putting them in the dishwasher? You know that feeling ... you just need a break- an escape from reality! Well, Zack Love's "Waiting for 2000" is DEFINITELY that escape! Zack's stage play takes you aboard a cruise ship on a comedic adventure with a boatful of zany crewmembers and overly eccentric billionaire guests. Throw in a couple of jealous, bumbling Wall Street traders into the mix and more craziness ensues! True to Zack Love's witty writing form, "Waiting for 2000" provides you with lots of laughs and head shaking theatrical moments that will undoubtedly make your bad day so much better!
My Best Valentine's Day.Ever and My Worst Valentine's Day.Ever are both short stories about two of the main characters from Zack's hilariously witty first novel, "Sex in the Title". These two stories are just as witty and funny as his novel and these characters still carry on with their silliness in the short stories.
*****The Grand Unified Story is a new story from Zack and I can't wait to read it :)
This was my first piece of work I have read by Zack Love. I have been wanting to for what seems like forever. So I was so excited to get finally get to sit and read his work.
Alex has just landed a high paying new job on Wall Street and also has moved into a condo on a Fifth Street. Of course he likes having a high paying job but he wants to do something more meaningful. He works so much that he doesn't actually get to enjoy life so really what is the point of making so much money of you can't enjoy it. The only people he talks to outside of work and his father and his girlfriend Anna but really his friends are his doormen, Lenny and Serge. They seem to know everything especially Lenny, if Alex asks him about a random fact he knows the answer....and he has the thought that maybe Lenny is God but then he couldn't be. When tragedy strikes and Alex has been saved from it, he asks himself again Could Lenny be God? He seems to know it all....
This Novelette really had me thinking. It's short but really gets your mind going about life and even about death. And of course the in between....what is meaningful for you during your time on earth? Is money or happiness more important? Why does God let things bad happen?
I really enjoyed the story and there was so much in it even though it's a novelette. And just a side note, I am Armenian and was surprised that the Armenian Genocide was mentioned. We don't hear about it much...
Can't wait to read more of the Short Stories, Screenplays and Comedies for Mr. Zack Love.
"I want to feel like I am making a difference in this world. And I want some time for living rather than just working. Life is for the living, isn't it? It can't be all just for working."
I couldn't explain Lenny any other way. But eventually I came to my senses and realize that he was just one of those game show freaks with an encyclopedia memory. That didn't make him God, did it? Would a God proclaim so regularly how much he likes Patsy's Pizza.
"But how would you even know that what you were experiencing was euphoric? Don't you need some pain to recognize and savor pleasure?"
***My Best Valentine's Day. Ever.
This is my First Zack Love Comedy Short Story and I was not disappointed. I was laughing from the very first sentence.
Sammy wanted to go to the City for Valentine's Day and even had lines himself up with a first date. It went from being what he thought would be romantic to Being shatted on but he wasn't the only one...and it turns out to be the best Valentine's Day Ever!
I love the way Zack writes. It is hilarious but also sweet in there. Valentine's Day can suck but can turn around. Hilarious...
Summoning my inner Kojak, I tried to convince myself that she would have sat next to me even had there been somewhere else on the bus to sit.
I'm Sammy. And the umbrella covering you is Ralph.
It was definitely the best Valentine's Day.Ever. I think I grew some extra chest hair after that one.
***My Worst Valentine's Day. Ever.
Oh Mr. Love how you crack me up!
It's Valentine's a Day in New York City of all places so why not try to have as many lays as you can in one Epic Day turned Night? This should have been the Best Valentine's Day Ever in a History if plans would have gone correctly for Yi or Narc...I didn't catch his actual name.
But when things are looking like they are going his way everything goes to s*** ...it could have been momentous but it was anything but.
I need more short stories! These just made my day...It's just up my alley with the humor.
Sometimes I wish I could just devote my entire life to the pursuit of pussy but I can't figure out a way to put that on my resume.
It's amazing how much a man can forgive when there's bootyliciousness involved.
And just when I am about to lay on the Yi-Wang Smooth...
Central Park Song is not your traditional romance, which is refreshing.
City Solipsism is a glimpse into the mind of a man on the subway and has one of the funniest endings.
The Grand Unified Story tells the story of a meeting between a man and woman and how it's connected to the universe. It's a really sweet story.
Waiting For 2000 is a funny play that has characters you won't forget.
My Best Valentine's Day. Ever. and My Worst Valentine's Day. Ever., bring back Sammy and Yi (Narc) from Sex in the Title. Their Valentine's Day stories are hilarious.
The Doorman is a brilliant story that will stay with you for a long time. I couldn't stop thinking about this story after I read it.
I can't recommend Zack Love's Stories and Scripts: An Anthology enough. You won't be disappointed. This is definitely worth the one-click.
