Read in June, 2007

in "The 400-Pound CEO," one of the shorts in this collection of six stories and a novella, corporate malfeasance, animal cruelty, manslaughter, destruction of property, incarceration, mockery, deception, obesity, alienation, self-mutilation, verbal abuse, homophobia, pornography, and sexual repression are evoked in the first three pages. saunders' pithy visions of america are dystopian, satirical, and absurdist. the extent to which they underscore the ills of our reality is eerie.
