Ricky Olson: Gloom

In Ricky Olson's gritty debut collection you'll dive into stories that draw grim landscapes where men and women are caught in equally disturbing scenarios. In one, a model addicted to the internet gets invited to an elite party by a stranger. In another, a high school student obsessed with death tries to quench an ever-growing thirst. In others, embarrassing sex is explored, survival of the fittest is exercised, and death is redeemed. Throughout these twelve short stories one thing is common: Olson isn't afraid to leave any rock unturned while exploring the dark side of the human condition.

All I have left of us now, of you, are these bright neon pink and blue and purple socks, sticking out of my coat pockets, still damp from laundry that we'll never share again.

For my older sister, her success was finding God. […] By the time I moved out, I was so sick of hearing about God and religion that I decided if I ever went to Heaven I'd have to apologize to God and excuse myself from his presence because I'd had enough of him for one eternity.
