Everyone I Know Lives on Roads: Short Fictions
Fiction. EVERYONE I KNOW LIVES ON ROADS examines the accident scene of celebrity, fate and language, measuring the skidmarks for traces of our Oedipal selves and chalking out the metaphorical places where these three paths converge. Road ragers and rubberneckers met along the way include Kathy Acker, Alan Greenspan, Jacques Derrida, Ayn Rand, Michael Alig and James Joyce, with hourly traffic reports from Dan Rather. "Though literature is usually the most conservative of art forms, a book sometimes appears that offers exciting new possibilities. Trevor Dodge's EVERYONE I KNOW LIVES ON ROADS is one of them: with the smooth surfaces found in new-painting, with the understated riffs of new-music, the stories collected here are as lean as they are savvy, as savvy as they are funny, as funny as they are connected to the thought, life and paths of our present moment"--Steve Tomasula.
