Description

The characters that inhabit Daniel Mueller's stories are all outcasts of different sorts -- a struggling poet trying to make ends meet as a stripper; an Aleut girl increasingly dissatisfied with life in an Alaskan salmon factory; an overweight man armed with a remote control, secretly changing channels on neighbors' television sets -- yet their stories chronicle a similar effort: the quest to shed their outsider status and seek solace, if not meaning, within the mainstream.A haunting and evocative exploration of dreams and disillusionment, How Animals Mate delves into the dangerous territories where psyches, pushed to their limits by desire, reveal themselves. A writer reminiscent of Flannery O'Connor and Truman Capote, Daniel Mueller has crafted stories that are compact, powerful, and uniquely American in style and sensibility.show more
