Bad News of the Heart

Lannan Selections
Douglas Glover

In Bad News of the Heart, a seeing-eye dog leads a blind man into a frozen river, a southern Baptist loses his memory and finds true love in Bel Air, an obese executive has anorgasmic latex sex with her CEO, and a homeless man in New York creates an intellectual universe based on post-it notes stuck to the inside of his cardboard box shelter.

Douglas Glover’s stories are wildly inventive, deadpan comedies of our universal human catastrophe. They are sly, demanding and wise—stories about language, desire and love (in a very dark place). The humor veers from the wry and sardonic to salacious, mordant and playful. And always there are moments of such stark emotional intimacy that the reader slides, almost without noticing, from laughter to lament.
