50 very short stories for a very strange time. Offbeat, drily humorous, occasionally touching, these stories cross genres, twist reality and defy your expectations.
Out Of Luck & Under Lockdown is a wry, hilarious, and sometimes startling collection that crackles with wit and originality. In these 50 compact stories life, already disrupted by the pandemic, is twisted further into a skewed version of itself. A version that we can’t help but recognize as being a truer, and funnier, reflection of what we are all living through. Especially those weird neighbors. They're just not coping, are they?
James Wondrasek creates a world that is intimately familiar and yet indelibly original. He is not so much writing small fictions as opening windows onto our contemporary concerns, our foibles, and our unvoiced hysteria. From retirees on fire and in-laws on the edge of sanity, to a practice run for the Apocalypse, he gives a form to the madness of the times we live in, telling just the kind of stories we need to get us through them. These stories, their imagery, their ideas, are likely to linger with you in the way dreams, revelations and epiphanies do - illuminating, thrilling, and sometimes tormenting.
