How do you do a synopsis of a short story collection?
Gordon's stories are primarily a mix of awkward, wit, and cleverness. Also, lots of eroticism so if you're the sort who blushes...probably best not to read them in public. There's something for all sorts of readers in here to be honest-the hyperrealists, the drug-addled, the fantasists, romantics...etc. Most of the narrators seem to have a bit of Gordon in them, different aspects of writers; and writers probably would appreciate most the hard truths mixed in with the wit and irony. Really, throughout the stories-the good and the average-it's Gordon's humor that charms the reader throughout.

I've put his novels on my TBR list based on the strength of his short stories...which is quite a compliment from me.
