Don't expect to find any hidden gems at this junk sale.

In writer and journalist Patrick Lombardi's debut book, tales get twisted and encounters get heated. This collection features more than a dozen humorous short stories and nonfiction essays. Lombardi has crafted a hilarious adventure into his own little world, where a man finds love while committing burglary, a fresh college graduate does his best not to get hired, and a bitter server verbally abuses his guests. From hopeless romantics to simply insane travelers, Lombardi captures a range of engaging personalities that will have you convulsing in laughter.

So buckle up for a chaotic ride of stories that live up to their collective title. "Junk Sale" is bound to make you laugh so hard you'll cry-or cry so hard you'll laugh. Either way, you'll cry. Isn't that the point of humor?

Patrick Lombardi writes in a similar vain to comedy greats like David Sedaris, Kurt Vonnegut, and Stephen Colbert. His humor is often cheerful and clever, but he isn't afraid to be blunt or caustic when the situation calls for it. But don't think too much into Lombardi's tales--they're constructed strictly for your enjoyment.
