With a clear-eyed affection for the wandering souls who populate his stories—as they cling to talismans like a cowboy shirt, a chenille bedspread and a 1953 classic Ford—Matt Cohen causes us to look at them, and the worlds they inhabit, in unexpected ways. In his darkly comic, wholly original manner, he moves and surprises us, makes us laugh, and reveals the many sides of his extraordinary imagination.
