The Madame Realism Complex

by Lynne Tillman
     
 

An irreverent and lucid sojourn through the facetious, twisted burps we call sophisticated society, captured by the camera-quick and ruthless eye of the ever-vigilant third person, Madame Realism. Each fiction has a terse analytical agenda, surgically dissecting the mundane, forcing quotidian life off the canvas,out of the museum dioramas and into our laps.

What People are saying about this

John Ashberry
"Roberta Allen transmits the pain and compensating strangeness of living in vinettes as urgent and inegnamic as telegrams. This is a stunning novella."
