The eleven stories in So Long Polyester examine the damage and hope born of loss. From the loss of innocence to losing your shirt, this elegant and at times darkly comic and disturbing debut collection is populated with characters struggling to keep their sanity, their status, their relationships and lives from unravelling. In the deliciously sinister Love, like Stew, a womans ex-boyfriend pushes too far and she finds herself caught in a battle for one-upmanship, while in Rock. Paper. Scissors., a prominent doctors indecisive wife threatens an affair forcing his hand and a mother recalls her childhood loss and the fight to free herself and family from their fanatical father in The Cure. In the title story So Long Polyester, an underachieving, dishevelled man interviews for his dream job which could lead to the greatest loss of all.
