    DescriptionRick Moody offers a brilliant trio of stories, spanning glittering golf courses, a stifling office and a harrowing dystopia. "The Albertine Notes" presents a cataclysmic vision of New York City after the leveling of fifty square blocks of Manhattan by a suitcase bomb. Albertine, the 'street name for the buzz of a lifetime', is a mind-altering drug through which survivors seek solace in the past. "K & K" concerns lonely young Ellie Knight-Cameron, office manager at an insurance agency, where the office suggestion box is yielding unpleasant messages that escalate to a scary pitch. And at the centre of "The Omega Force" is a buffoonish former government official in rocky recovery. Dr 'Jamie' Van Deusen is determined to protect his habitat - its golf courses (and Bloody Marys) and pizza places (and beers) from 'dark-complected' foreign nationals.
