Tom Barbash is the guest. His story collection Stay Up With Me is now available in paperback from Ecco.
The Daily Beast calls it
“Fantastic…These Cheever-esque stories all show that Barbash has a sensitive ear towards the subtle ways that relationships are formed and altered, but he’s also not afraid to open a story with a car accident and watch the sparks fly.”
And The New York Times says
“These stories should come with a warning: They might undo you.”
Monologue topics: competition, competitive mania, confusion, fear, loathing.
