Beschreibung:

Twenty-three surreal fictionsstories, character assassinations, and mini-traveloguesfrom one of the most heralded writers of the American South There are many things that repulse ';Dr. Ordinary.' ';Kansas' is notable for its distinct lack of farmland. ';Wayne's Fate' is most unfortunate, not merely for Wayne but for the roofer pal who stands by watching his good buddy lose his head. ';Miss Resignation' simply cannot win at Bingo. And there is nothing ';Typical' about the unemployed steelworker and self-described ';piece of crud' who strides through this collection's title story. Welcome to the world of Padgett Powell, one of the most original American literary voices in recent memory. Typical is both a bravura demonstration of Powell's passion for words, and an offbeat, perceptive view of contemporary lifean enthralling work by a one-of-a-kind wordsmith, and a redefinition of what short fiction can be.
