"In the provocative title story an ambitious young actor assumes the identity of his dead brother, killed in a notorious Hollywood film accident. "Brilliant Disguise" tells the story of an Asian American masked wrestler, while in "Lost Years" two brothers must adopt false names while on the road and on the run. Whether portraying the hapless erosion of innocence or the musings of young men longing to be something other - a boy detective, a Jehovah's Witness, a swan - the stories in Goblin Fruit announce a distinctive literary voice shaped by the pop dreams and cultural divides of a Los Angeles forever transformed by the writer's subtle craft."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
