Synopsis : In 10 strikingly original stories and a prize-winning novella, Rick Moody paints a world of frustration, yearning, lies, decay, and obsession as he introduces a dissonant band of outsiders. Meet:
-- a frenzied undergraduate who confesses his delusions in a term paper
-- a hip young media personality whose film treatment reveals a pathological self-obsession
-- an investigator whose deposition reveals his own increasingly sordid attempts to spy on his wife
-- and more.
A stunning literary achievement, these daring, surprising, energetic stories -- masterpieces of language, structure, and momentum -- will entertain and astound from beginning to end.
"Consistently inventive...a wicked eye for detail". -- The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis: This first novel by the acclaimed author of Demonology and The Ice Storm traces a group of friends in Haledon, New Jersey, through one Spring in their rocky passage towards adulthood. The kids are out of school, trying to start a band, trying to find work; looking for something to do within the degraded terrain of their suburban hometown. Garden State starkly captures the lyricism of their lives in an intense and unforgettable story of friendship and betrayal.
