David Foster Wallace Ruined My Suicide and Other Stories

Wolsak & Wynn, April 2014

From Wolsak & Wynn:

Filled with burning parade floats, bear attacks and roller derby leagues, D.D. Miller’s short stories present us with a comical collection of slacker heroes who get what they deserve in unexpected ways. These men are survivors who fail to see how fortunate they are, and who watch helplessly as their lives unravel, if only because they fail to act. Miller’s deft sentences and sharp characterization bring these stories to life, pulling his readers into the lives of these often self-centred underdogs, where the readers find themselves sympathizing with the characters while still laughing at the mishaps Miller has artfully scattered in his characters’ paths.
