Quick Shots of False Hope: A Rejection Collection
Nobody ever promised Laura (except maybe her high school Spanish teacher, and she never understood what he was saying anyway) that life was going to be easy. And sure enough, it wasn't. From her high school talent competition where she performs a stunning syncopated "funktastic" dance to "Car Wash, " to her first job and subsequent dismissal at the local all-you-can-eat steakhouse, to the ultimate revenge fantasy of a stand-up comic who has been heckled one too many times, this is a sardonic look into the everyday workings of a performer and her not-so-stellar life. Wildly irreverent and darkly comic, these stories will make you laugh, cringe, and ultimately identify.
