Beschreibung:

Twenty-three surreal fictionsstories, character assassinations, and mini-traveloguesfrom one of the most heralded writers of the American SouthThere 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.
