The Suffering of Lesser Mammals

In The Suffering of Lesser Mammals, acclaimed author Greg Sanders draws the reader into a world of believable absurdity, as individual crises meld with those of the age. Among the thirteen stories in this collection, a young father’s anxiety throws the Earth out of orbit; a bachelor breaks up with his car; a “multivariate correlator” conjures a lonely deity; two sisters are abducted by a cadre of immortal alewives. Wildly inventive, morally wise, and achingly funny, this is the short story as reimagined by a fearless—and fearsome—voice.
