Product description

Review

If the world ended tomorrow and your soul was ready and your loins were sated, next you'd need a good yarn and a hard laugh. That's Eliot Fintushel's brilliant Breakfast with the Ones You Love. A deft, hilarious, and lovable apocalyptic tale that mashes the hardboiled, the nightmarish and the absurdly mundane like some new pharmaceutical with side effects that are equal parts joy, terror and wisdom. Not a bad way to go.--Patrick O'Leary, author of The Impossible Bird

"Wild, wonderful, crazy...like Howard Waldrop, R. A. Lafferty, Avram Davidson, and T. C. Boyle, Fintushel is a one off; and Breakfast with the Ones You Love reads like P. J. Wodehouse (on speed) collaborating with Isaac Bashevis Singer, Harlan Ellison, Woody Allen, and Barry N. Malzberg. "--Jack Dann, author of The Memory Cathedral and The Rebel: An Imagined Life of James Dean

"Eliot Fintushel and his nifty stories have been an ongoing joy for me for years."--Harlan Ellison

"Breakfast with the Ones You Love has the comedic timing of a pro.... delightfully wacky."--Denver Post
