Scott Snyder's protagonists inhabit a playfully deranged fictional world in which a Wall Street trader can find himself armed with a speargun, guarding a Dumpster outside a pawnshop in Florida; or an employee at Niagara Falls (his job: watching for jumpers) will take off in a car after a blimp in which his girlfriend has escaped. But in Snyder's wondrous imagination there's a thin membrane between the whimsical and the disturbing: the unlikely affair between a famous actress--in hiding after surgery--and a sporting goods salesman takes an ominous turn just as she begins to heal; an engaged couple's relationship is fractured when one of them becomes obsessed with an inmate at the women's prison next door. Dark, funny, powerful, this debut collection underscores the remarkable gifts of a fiercely original young writer. From the Hardcover edition.

From the same writer of recent Batman comic books, this is a collection of short stories by Scott Snyder. I enjoyed many of the stories in this collection. The art work to the book goes along with a story called Blue Yodel. It is a little absurdist and I can't think of a better way to tell a story of love as a man that takes his love to the extreme when tracks a blimp traveling across the skies while carrying his fiancé away.
