Overview

Jeff Tapia's collection Deep Tissue is written in a preposterously excruciating style that mimics the often preposterous and excruciating everydayness of modern life. In the title story, a man seeks revenge against his soon-to-be ex-wife by destroying her new kitchen appliance. In "Fear's," a disgruntled security guard asks his good-natured buddy to help him cut off his foot. The middle-aged woman in "The Dark Continent" keeps the lump in her breast a secret from her new partner only to discover - belatedly - that he has a secret of his own. Mimicking the soulless rummage of the information age, Deep Tissue explores the poignant needs and desires of everyday people engulfed in a phony world.
