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.
