“The Fun Parts”
You think you know yourself, the world. You believe you’ve got a bead on everybody else’s bullshit, but what about your own?
Sam Lipsyte is a novelist and short story writer who recently (2013) published his fifth book: The Fun Parts – a collection of 13 short stories that rail against the wealthy, the weak, and the stupid.
