Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Steve Almond, the man whose candy jones fueled the bestseller "Candyfreak," returns with a collection of stories that both seals his reputation as a master of the modern form and risks getting him arrested. The cast of characters in "The Evil B.B. Chow and Other Stories" includes a wealthy family certain they have been abducted by space aliens, a sexy magazine editor who falls for a worldclass cad, and a beleaguered dentist who refuses to read his best friend's novel. Michael Jackson and Abraham Lincoln make cameos, as do a variety of desperate and beautiful loonies, all of whom are laid bare, often literally. In these twelve stories, Almond refuses to let his characters off the hook, or to abandon them, until we have seen the full measure of ourselves within their struggle.
