    One thought on “Seduction Theory: Stories”

    1. So little happens in these stories and still they work so well. Michael Silverblatt said of Ann Beattie that she wrote a new kind of story, one that was made up of collected rapture. This is how I feel about Thomas Beller's early stories. He collects the rapture of childhood, of living with your mother, of failing with women who are smarter than you are, and presents it in stunning language. I will reread this for a long, long time.

    2. Refreshing stories about New York City and growing up there. Recounting life as a young man and all the anxieties about the boy/girl dating thing. Stories about Alex alternate through unrelated stories. Really enjoyed.

    3. A fun compilation of short stories that take place in New York City and capture the male perspective of relationships. I particularly liked the progression of "Alex" from awkward adolescent to doom-awaiting adult.

    4. Sweet little short stories, romantically written but not necessarily about romance, weaving in and out of the streets of New York City.

    5. Later day Salinger or more down to earth J.S. Foer? Or something entirely its own? Not sure yet, but it's good.
