    DescriptionFrom the author of Superbad and Superworse, a new collection of stories about giving, wanting, and the wonders of love. A Circle Is a Compass and a Balloon Both is a collection of stories about love, the most elusive and problematic of all phenomena. With a mix of traditional, literary prose and bold ? some might even say irresponsible ? experimentation, Ben Greenman explores the ins and outs of modern romance. Expect tears, nudity, and recrimination. Both familiar in their humanness and wholly original, these imaginative stories take us all over the map in time, place, and circumstance. From the halfhearted summer affair between a part-time bartender and a married doctor in a Miami hotel to the cryptic pseudo-erotic love letters to a friend who is ?more than a friend, ? we experience the love of pop songs, the love of cohabitation in Chicago, and love that is so transporting it takes us to the moon?literally.
